Very accessible to public transportation. You can go here without booking a travel agency. I like it since it's blue in the inside. Also it's just like any other church. But visit this and make a wish. 😉

When I was in Puerto Princesa I visited this beautiful church. I attended the 6 pm mass and it was a great experience.

What are the schedules of the masses held at the Cathedral on a daily basis? Some tourists to Puerto Princesa may want to attend mass but there is no information on the net about it. Hope you can share that info soonest. Thanks!

Hours may change due to holidays or occasions. Do visit the Cathedral and check out the hours for services yourself.
