Just had a quick visit here at the end of a city tour. I am curious if the cathedral will be repainted blue once renovations are completed. Inside the ceiling was unusual with the wooden inlays with photos of saints or other religious figures.

As a landmark monument this church fares rather poorly. It offers however the chance to rest and recover from the scorching sun of Puerto Princesa
