London, United Kingdom

The cathedral is large, old, low-lying, in earthquake baroque style, built to withstand the forces of nature as much as human aggressors. Packed to overflowing on Sundays. There are several museums, in the cathedral, the bishop’s palace (another fine old building), the governor’s palace (ditto), and a couple of old houses. If you regret not being able to view Imelda Marcos’ collection of shoes any longer, there is a fine display belonging to an ex-governor’s wife in the Crisologo Mansion.
