San Sebastian Cathedral, Lipa City, a Slideshow of this set on Flickr.

Just something to revive this blog. Amazing architecture, didn’t go in though. That would be for another post at another day.

Excerpts from Lipa City Tourism and Heritage

“Administered by the Augustinians beginning April 30, 1605 (and until the end of the 19th century) under the name “Convent of San Sebastian in Comintang” the first church building was made of light materials. The present building of “serious architecture, proven solidity and great proportions” began its construction through the concerted efforts of Augustinians who administered the Parish of San Sebastian and the faithful people of Lipa : in 1779, Fray Ignacio Vasquez Pallares, later on continued by Fray Manuel Galiana in 1787, and its spacious transept completed in 1865 by Fray Manuel Diez Gonzalez.”
