Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral, also known as Sorsogon Cathedral, is the seat of the Diocese of Sorsogon. Its most distinguishable feature structure-wise is its dome-shaped tower, which closely resembles that of St. Peter Basilica in Vatican. It is a landmark that dominates Sorsogon City's skyline and can easily be spotted from the Rompeolas baywalk.
The best way to start off the tour of Sorsogon City is to have a leisure walk around the Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Complex. The Provincial Capitol Building with its grand Roman Columns façade has been Sorsogon province's seat of government since 1916. The Freedom Park in front of it is a spacious plaza landscaped with trees and features a monument of Dr. Jose Rizal built in 1923. The area is an ideal place for those who are curious to take a peek into the city's local vibe. People-watching is especially great during afternoons and on weekends, when small groups flock to their own corners around the park for an activity or to just simply relax and chat. There's the occasional street vendor enticing people with their snacks, while the rest of the crowd are mere passers-by.
What used to be an old pier is now a kilometer-long baywalk with picturesque views of the sea and Mt. Bulusan across the bay. Rompeolas is now a tidy locale for enjoying strolls plus a few other activities like kayaking and, on special occasions, events like film screenings and concerts. Like the Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Complex, this spot provides tourists with plenty of opportunities to people-watch and interact with Sorsogoanos. If not on the baywalk, residents would likely spend the time lazily at the nearby food court enjoying street food and other popular merienda meals with friends or family. Late afternoons is when Rompeolas gets really crowded with people anticipating the sunset, which is particularly beautiful in this part of the city.
