Cool Change

The Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral recently completed the restoration/renovation/construction of some of the major components of the church compound. Included in the project were the church facade, parking slots, church plaza, rest rooms, sidewalks, and candle-lighting area. Prior to the start of the project, the plaza in front of the church was messy, dirty, and cluttered. Now, it is very clean, organized, and pretty. The church also now looks so much better than before. The facade had a much-needed lift and the interior now looks really incredible.

1836. I think this was the year when the church was constructed. Or completed.
