Side Trip: San Sebastian Cathedral

Pls. like my Facebook page, Bak-paker's Adventures.

For more photos of San Sebastian Cathedral, pls. visit my Facebook album by clicking this link San Sebastian Cathedral.

Just in front of the city plaza is the San Sebastian Cathedral. The San Sebastian Cathedral is considered one of the most historical structures of Bacolod City. On the right side of the Cathedral lies the Bishops’ Palace and on the left side is the La Consolacion College.



The cathedral was made of coral stones from Guimaras while the wooden parts were made of hardwood cut in Paragua (Palawan). Some of the relics of the bishops and priests who served at the San Sebastian Cathedral were buried before the Cathedral’s main altar.


The cathedral was named after Bacolod’s patron saint, Saint Sebastian.

  2. They are arrows. The Emperor attempted to execute him with a firing squad of archers. He survived but was later clubbed to death and his body thrown into the Great Sewer of Rome.
