Originally, the cathedral was just a simple parish church in Manila until upon the issuance of a papal bull by Pope Gregory XIII, it became a separate diocese altogether. The Manila Cathedral is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, which is one of the titles for the Blessed Virgin Mary. It’s also a venue for masses held by popes, Blessed Paul VI and St. John Paul being one of the few. If you’re interested to learn more about the cathedral, you can request for a tour on their website!
From 1356 to 1792, Frankfurt Cathedral’s Wahlkapelle (election chapel) saw the selection of Holy Roman emperors. After 1562, it even became the coronation site of ten imperial rulers! The red-sandstone property is distinguishable by its 95-meter high tower. Climb 328 steps to get to the observation platform, which grants you scenic views of the city’s skyline! Drop by the on-site Dommuseum, as well, to peruse the church’s collection of liturgical objects.
