What travelers say:

The original cathedral of Manila was comprehensively destroyed during WWII. The current cathedral was built after the war to replace it, but obviously couldn't be expected to be of the same build-quality. It's nice enough, but just doesn't have that same colonial aura to it.

Additional Information


A true merging of traditional Catholic architecture, modern influences and Philippine culture, the Manila Cathedral in Manila, Philippines, offers a melting pot of faith and art. The current cathedral was erected in 1958 in the same spot as once stood the original church, decimated during the Philippine Battle of Liberation in 1945. The cathedral was created by world renown architect Fernando Ocampo, and, though it encapsulates many of the original's qualities, the church also displays many modern influences. Once inside, you discover that the heart of it is quite majestic in it's Philippine nature, making the Manila Cathedral a must see.
