Pasig Cathedral and Museum Pasig Cathedral and Museum Pasig Cathedral and Museum
Also known as the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Pasig Cathedral is the oldest Marian parish in Asia. Like other churches in the Philippines, the cathedral follows a baroque Spanish design, whose structure is based on adobe blocks. While much of the cathedral's design was altered in the 20th century, its bell tower retains its historic appeal. Augustinian missionaries laid the parish's first foundation in 1575, and gave it the title Conventus Visitationis Mariae de Pasig (Our Lady of Visitation). Twelve years later, the parish was renamed after the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. The parish was then inaugurated into the status of a cathedral in 2003. At the right side of the cathedral is a hallway leading to the Pasig Diocesan Museum. The museum displays elaborate church vestments and historical emblems of the cathedral, such as crucifixes, candelabras, chalices, incense boats, mass gongs, church beams, and Spanish tiles.

Nearby attractions

Lopez Museum and Library
1.36 km away

Lopez Museum and Library is an intimately spaced maze of artworks, rizaliana, antique Philippine maps, and rare books. It is most known for these three: its library of over 21,000 Filipiniana titles, and its art collections of Juan Luna and Felix Hidalgo Resurreccion paintings. Built in 1960, the Lopez Museum and Library is the oldest privately owned museum and library in the Philippines. The museum has about five interconnected sections. Other than the Juan Luna and Felix Hidalgo Galleries, the others display the National Hero Jose Rizal's personal belongings, modern paintings from Philippine National Artists, and some archaeological artifacts from Calatagan Excavation. The museum also holds a collection of about 300 antique Philippine maps since 1507, hand-drawn by various colonial and native cartographers.

The Mind Museum
3.15 km away

The leading science museum in the Philippines, The Mind Museum is an interactive learning playground with 250 exhibits and two outdoor parks. Inside, the museum is divided into five galleries. From the infinitely small to the infinitely big, the galleries are the Atom Gallery, Life Gallery, Technology Gallery, Earth Gallery, and the Universe Gallery. Some of its many features include the world's most complete dinosaur fossil (a tyrannosaurus rex named Stan), an enlarged molecular structure of a chocolate, a life-size model of the baby blue whale, a simulation of the Hubble Space Telescope, and enlarged version of the human brain. Outside The Mind Museum building, visitors can either play in the Science-in-the-Park or hangout in the zen-inspired JY Campos Park. The museum itself looks like a silver spaceship that just landed in the center of Taguig's business district.

Pasig City Museum
3.50 km away

Housed in the two-storey Concepcion Mansion, Pasig City Museum is a patchwork of art pieces, artifacts, and memorabilia bearing the history of Pasig and its people. The mansion was designed after neo-Castilian architecture. The corkscrew columns, colonnaded terraces, ornamental plasterwork and fringes, and tiled roof are an attraction in itself, showcasing the architectural heritage of the city. Inside, the museum is loosely divided into collections, among the highlights are Mutya ng Pasig, Asemblea Magna, and Nagsabado ng Pasig, all found on the first floor. The second floor displays the museum's permanent collections, including the Natural Science Collection, Comparative Sites & Landmarks, Philippine Coins & Paper Money, and Valentin Cruz Room, which features memorabilia from the Katipunan general who led the first victory of the 1986 Revolution in Pasig.
