Dating back to the 17th century, this church was once led by the first missionary in Guam, Father San Vitores, and was completely restored to its current splendor following its destruction in World War II.

The buildings of Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral-Basilica are so unique. There is a mass going on when we visit, so we did not go in to take pictures. The big "Guam" words are a famous check point for tourist.

Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral, a Catholic church, is just a stone throw away from Guam Museum, beside Plaza de Espana and across Guam Congress. Within the Cathedral, there is a store for religious articles and a small bakeshop selling newly baked pies or bread.
