The St. Williams Cathedral is not the usual cathedral you'll see in Laoag, it's kinda new and colorful. It's just a walking distance away from Sinking Bell Tower.

It's a stone away from the Sinking Bell Tower 😊 An old church centrally located. It's a white & gold interior 👍🏻 A must for churchgoers and catholics 😇🙏🏼

The church is worth a visit, it is right in downtown Laoag. There is a parking lot surrounding the church which takes away from the exterior beauty. The church is huge and one of many beautiful churches in Ilocos Norte.
