Cebu Cathedral is a newer church one block from the Church of the Holy Child. Compared with the decadent sense of the Church of the Holy Child, it is neat, solemn and simple, blending the styles of modern minimalism and classical churches. The popularity of Cebu Cathedral is slightly weaker than that of the Church of the Infant, but the exterior and interior are more gorgeous, and the church under the night is more beautiful. There are often new people who hold weddings there.

The 'Cebu Cathedral', as it is popularly called, is the ecclesiastical seat of metro Cebu Archdiocese in the Philippines.
On 14 August 1595, Cebu has been established as a diocese and elevated as a metropolitan archdiocese on 28 April 1934.
The church was established as the seat of Cebu bishop when the province became one of the suffragan dioceses under the archdiocese of Manila in 1595.
Just like all the churches built during that period, Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral started as a holy place built with wood and nipa palms as its structure, according to "Balaanong Bahandi, a book on the Sacred Treasures of the Archdiocese of Cebu."
