This Cathedral is an old building, It is in Intermuros part of Manila. It was built by the Spanish, this area was the capital of Manila. The Church is nice and the area is well preserved. Make sure to see the fort nearby as well.

Spacious and feel solemn while inside. Though many people attended, we still feel the peaceful and solemnity of the mass. I like the bronze (not sure) statues and the mini museum inside.

My first-time guests were inspired when they entered the doors. They are not Catholic so its a big thing for them to see what it looks like inside a Church.
I appreciate that the Cathedral keeps its doors open for curious onlookers.
