San Pedro Cathedral in Davao City


One of my wanderings here in the city last September  brought me to San Pedro Cathedral. I was with my sister who are on vacation when I took this shot. This church is very close to my heart because Bren and I used to come here to hear mass when we were still sweethearts.  After attending the Sunday mass, we would indulge  to the delightful street foods  flocking outside the church which really made us both happy.;)

Along San Pedro Street...

Named after Saint Peter, San Pedro Cathedral in Davao City is located along the corner of San Pedro Street and C.M. Recto Avenue. This church is said to be the oldest in Davao City being built in 1847 and its design was inspired by Noah's Ark. 

It actually took me a little while to decide about the niche of this blog. When I finally decided to make this a travel and fashion blog, another difficulty came in for I don't know where to start.  I hope I gave justice to this blog by starting off with this post.

  12. Wow! I like the church. It's very vintage! And the fact that this is where you and your hubby usually hear mass when you were still young and inlove made me imagine ang cute siguro nyo nun! Parang telenovela sis!

    Anyway, sige will try to fix that gap down this post when I get back from all the kabusyhan this week. Muah!

  13. Classic ang porma ng Church nyo, Rovs. I'm not a Catholic kaya di pa ko nakakapasok dyan, hehehe. Pero madalas napapadaan ako dyan when I am in Davao.

    It's great to be here sa new blog mo, Rovs. My first time ;-)
