San Pedro Cathedral, Davao
Part 13 of a series
Just across the Davao City Hall is the San Pedro Cathedral. The church is bordered by San Pedro Street, Bolton Street and C.M. Recto Avenue.
San Pedro Street, the heart of Davao City
Built in 1847 during the Spanish occupation by Don Jose Uyanguren, the San Pedro Cathedral is the oldest church in Davao City. You’d think that the church was just named after the street where it stands (San Pedro Street), but aside from that, it’s actually named after its patron saint, St. Peter or San Pedro.
It is interesting to note that some Muslim elements have been incorporated into the Cathedral’s architecture.
At the right side of the Church are its bell tower and Candle Gallery.

The San Pedro Cathedral is now recognized as a National Cultural Treasure.
