Similar to Reims Cathedral in France you will find this church near the beach on San Sebastian Street. St. Sebastian is the patron saint of the city and construction started in 1936 but took 10 years to complete.

Negombo is mostly catholic and this church is important for the community. The gardens outside are pretty, in the gardens one can see the stations of the cross with sculptures made by local artists. The gardens and the church were beautifully decorated for Christmas.
