I passed by the church a lot during my 4 days in Bacolod. This is right in front the plaza and looks really pretty at night. The church bells are on the right side of the entrance.

This place is quite cozy from the morning, it's just in the city centre of Bacolod and I visited there twice in my last visit. You can reach here by walk from SM Bacolod. Hope you guys enjoyed there.

We attended a quick mass here since its a Sunday. The church was beautiful outside and much more on the inside. What's interesting here is their side part where there are statues of saints in line with there names.

One of the oldest church in the City. The Cathedral's slender belltowers greet you as if enticing you to drop by to this historical piece of art. I like to come here for a moment to pray for family and friends.

Church is open, but during non-mass timings, you can access through a side door.
