I go to this church since I was little and it has a great connection to me. it might not be the fanciest but it is indeed one that I treasure. For tourist or first time visitors in Zamboanga, the church is a great place to visit to offer your prepares and meditation.

The Metropolitan Cathedral is an architectural spectacle in a city where Christians and Muslims live in peace and harmony. While it is located in the busy downtown area, the place is always solemn and a perfect place to pray and reflect. Its famous church bells also make pleasant, melodious chimes. This huge, two-storey church holds daily masses.
