It's a place to be with yourself whether you want to pray, meditate or just take time of silence. Overlooking the City of Davao and just a 30 minutes away from the City. You Can buy food outside the Shrine, can ride Taxi or tricycle.

HI Ina, I haven't been to San Pedro Cathedral but based on Google map the 2 locations seem to be near and will take 20min by car. It's 5.6km away. Hope this information helps.
