About San Sebastian Church

 A grand Cathedral devoted to San Sebastian located in Manila was build in 1921 by a rich and religious patron who donated both the land and money. However, thirty years later the church was destroyed by fire during a Chinese uprising. It was rebuild but destroyed by an earthquake or fire again and a few times after that. In the end in 1891 after loosing four churches over 250 years the church leaders decided to put an end to the destruction and they developed a Cathedral entirely out of pre-fab steel which is the first and only building to be constructed with this material in Asia to this day. More than a century later and the church hasn't experience not even a dent to its structure. The beauty of this church comes alive from its faulted ceilings, glimmering stained-glass and Gothic spires which inspire wedding planners to bring their clients towards to this gorgeous and strong church.
