“Interesting Old Church in Maasin”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

There isn't much going on in Maasin but we were passing through and I wanted to see the Cathedral. Its pretty but there wasn't much going on when we were there and there isn't much for a tourist other than Jolibee across the street. Not a bad stop for 10 minutes.

“One of the more interesting Cathedrals”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Maasin Cathedral is worth a look if you're in the city, the contrast between the outside and inside of the building is interesting, particularly when compared to many of the others in the country. Well looked after and a peaceful place in the heart of one of my favourite Filipino cities.

“Beautiful Provincial Cathedral”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

This small and lovely cathedral is made of coral blocks carved from the ocean lying before it.
Maasin is the capital of Southern Leyte and there are a reasonable amount of resources there, including food and housing, to facilitate your trip to Maasin.

Facilities are very near but obviously the church does not serve lunch!

The cathedral can be seen in more detail in http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/651921
Just flip through the book, no need to buy.
