This church has been around for ages. It's definitely worth visiting if you are in to touring historical sites.

This is an unattractive concrete brutalist style building. I did not find it to be one of the more beautiful Filipino or indeed worldwide Cathedrals, even though I am Catholic. Even the altar was relatively bare.

It's a simple cathedral but for a Catholic like me it's a must-see so I can pay homage to our GOD for giving us the opportunity to visit Davao. From City Hall we just crossed the street to go to San Pedro Cathedral. Then we walked some more to go to Museo Dabawenyo.

The cathedral hasn't changed much, except for the altar (which is not distinguishable from new and ornate altars churches have been acquiring in recent decades) since I last visited it in the 1990s. There are a lot to be improved in the cathedral in terms of repairs and cleaning.

We had a chance to hear mass in San Pedro Cathedral during our stay since it was near our hotel. Good thing is they have schedule for "english" because we are from Manila. Very convenient because there were fastfood chains nearby where you can eat after mass
