always our first stop whenever we go to Naga City. The Basilica is impressive with its high ceiling and glass painted windows. but most of all you'll feel a certain peace whenever you enter the premises.

Quiet and peaceful. We always visit the Basilica every time we are in Naga City. We attended the mass at 7:00 am . There is a mass everyday in this church.

Nice place. Nice stained glasses. I just didn't expect to see a quite small statue of Our Lady of Peñafancia. I thought she's as big sa Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan and Our lady of Piat in Tuguegarao.

The place has many parking lots. It's best to come here during weekdays because it is less crowded. There is a mass at 11:15 during weekdays.
