San Pedro Cathedral

The San Pedro Cathedral, also known as the Davao Cathedral, is a Catholic Romanesque cathedral in Barangay Poblacion, Davao City. The cathedral also serves as the ecclesial seat of the Catholic Archdiocese of Davao. 

The cathedral started out as a smaller church in 1847, which was built in the neo-Gothic style. However, the Diocese of Davao wanted to expand the church in the 1960s since the original church was too small. The expansion and renovation were headed by architect Manuel Chiew, who changed the design from neo-Gothic to Spanish and created a roof that resembles an ark. The construction was finished in 1964. 


Best time to visit

It's best to visit the cathedral on Sundays if you want to celebrate mass at this historic site. Otherwise, visitors can drop by the cathedral any day of the week to say a silent prayer and admire the architecture.
