Well, it's time for me to post my favorite Cathedral that many of you might not even know. Since it is located on the far side of the world, in a nation that is predominantly Catholic, The Philippines, many of you might not even seen this Cathedral yet. Well, it's not very grandiose since we are not in EUROPE, HELLO? would you expect a Notre Dame de Chartres-style of Cathedral in ASIA? ANyways, it was first built somewhere in the 1570's and it has been rebuilt over and over again for over 7 times. The Spaniards built a grand one in the 1800's but it was bombed by the Americans in WWII since they though some Japs might have been hiding there.

Well anyway, here is it. This is the back portion


This next picture below shows the bell tower, FYI, this cathedral is a reconstucted one built by the Vatican in 1957. It is located in Intramuros, Manila. Intramuros had 10 churches before including this cathedral, only one of them remained entirely intact.


Anyway, this is the Cathedral just right after the WWII Liberation of Manila where 100,000 souls lost their lives, this pic below is a grimy reminder of what war can do!


This pic below shows the interiors of the Cathedral, rather bland compared to the ones in Europe but then again WE ARE IN ASIA!


Well, many might be skeptical if ever we Filipinos have got some nice churches to share, well, we have! This next pic is not the Manila Cathedral, rather the Iglesia de San Agustin, a UNESCO World HEritage Site, oldest in the Philippines. It's got a lovely interior!



Hope you liked my favorite Church and Cathedral, all photos, I got them from the Philippine sub-forum and it's my bad that I forgot to whom I should give credit to, so kung sino man siya, sana mapatawad niya ako!
