Start off your historic visits of turn-of-the-century Negrense architecture by dropping by this church. A Bacolod tourist standard, it's worth the visit after all.

Just because i require my family to visit every church passed by every road trip. Every time we visit Bacolod, we offer a prayer and light a candle here. It makes our visit complete.

It's a big stone Church and is the main Church of the City. It's quite accessible and located at the heart of the city, across the main square. They have noon Masses so it's very convenient for people to go to.
