I can feel peace and solemn just by looking at that photos, how I wish I can walk down the isle of that cathedral. It's such a historic place where thousands of worshipers gather and pray and the architecture makes it more inviting.

By the way I also want to share you this nice blog which can be found here http://cebutourist.com/ it is based on the Philippines, I can also say that it is rich in historical places and chapels.
