  • Boac Cathedral is such a beautiful catholic church. Last went here on 10 May 2022 for an afternoon mass. My wife, who just visited the church for the first time said, "Maganda magpakasal sa simbahan na 'to."
  • This cathedral has historical bell placed before the church entrance. Its interior is cozy and gas a great ceiling. It has a very beautiful walls that can be contempory and majestic. I love Boac Cathedral so much that I love Marinduque province in itself.
