San Sebastian Cathedral, Bacolod

#1 of 24 in Things to do in Bacolod
Must see · Church · Tourist Spot
Appreciate the imposing stone facade of San Sebastian Cathedral, the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bacolod. The church was buit in 1876, and has since undergone many renovations, picking up a life-size statue of Saint Sebastian along the way. Its architecture tells its history, and when you enter the first thing you’ll see is the magnificent altar. The church's interior also boasts a white ceiling with golden details, as well as rows of wooden pews, while its churchyard contains two bells that once adorned the bell towers. See the cathedral's columbarium, where the remains of bishops lie. For San Sebastian Cathedral and beyond, use our Bacolod trip itinerary planning tool to get the most from your Bacolod vacation.

  • Must visit here in Bacolod! Luckily there is an evening mass so we get to experience it. The choir is good too!
