St. Paul Metropolitan Cathedral – Vigan

The frontage of the Vigan Cathedral is that of a white concrete on the shape of a house-like pentagon. The slanted sides are slightly curved inward. It has four spires evenly distributed on top and a black cross on the very top where the slanted segments meet. On the ground level, it has three semi-oblong entrances. The door at the center is open and slightly larger, while the ones on the sides are of the same size and are closed by brown wooden doors. Also seen in this picture is a separate bell tower structure on the right with the same color as the church's frontage. The bell tower has a dove statue on top, a clock near the top, two tiers with semi-oblong windows each, and a wider base with spires on four corners of its top surrounding the lower tier.

Picture Gallery

The nave of the Vigan Cathedral has two rows of wooden pew, arching ceiling lined with goldtone designs, and the sanctuary partly visible with two-tiered reredos. The top tier has one compartment with a statue of a saint, while the lower tier has three compartments, each with a statue of a saint. The reredos is too far so it's not clear in this picture who these saints are.Inside the Vigan Cathedral just behind the entrance. Visible here are the wooden doors, the main entrance, and a staircase. On the right is a large wooden podium with statues of five different saints: one is likely to be Saint Anthony, one seems like the Blessed Virgin Mary in blue cloak with Amen pose while looking up, a saint in purple robe kneeling, one has green and yellow garments similar to that of Saint Joseph but his face is clearly shaven, Saint Jude Thaddeus in white robe and green cloak, and a statue of a child that looks like the Sto. Nino in white. Also at the center of this structure is a crucifix with Jesus in red undergarment.
