Albay

Legazpi Cathedral

The seat of the Roman Catholic bishop of Legazpi, Albay is the Spanish-old Cathedral of San Gregorio Magno.  The cathedral started as a lowly wooden chapel built by the early Spanish missionaries in the 1580s. It was extensively damaged during World War II and was renovated in 1951. Today, the St. Gregory the Great Cathedral is the most prominent landmark of the city and is the endpoint of one of the grandest Good Friday processions in the region.
