The cathedral is located in Intramuros, the old spanish city of Manila and a tourist attraction. You should see it at nighttime when the lights are on.

We were there just for a while because of ongoing weading - very fancy. the cathedral does not look so bombast, shiny, like in others across the Europe, that is pleasant. The history of many collapse is incredible horror.

Nice church. Not particularly grand or opulent. But nice and well maintained. Orderly. Cool doors. A cool alter.
