The Cathedral Church of Dumageute, properly titled St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral, is a very imposing structure situated opposite Quezon (Rizal) Park on F. Perdices Street and forms very much the centrepiece of the city.
The Church as it then (it was raised to Cathedral status much later) was was constructed between 1754 and 1776 which makes it the oldest stone Church on Negros. It was reconstructed in 1885 but the facade you see now dates only from 1936.
The inside of the building is light and airy although I didn't take any photos as there was a Mass in progress when I visited and I thought it disrespectful. I shall revisit soon and update the photos here.
Directions: Opposite Quezon (Rizal) Park on F. Perdices Street.
