Dagupan City Plaza and the Metropolitan Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist

Just about an hour drive from where I live via the Villasis-Malasiqui route, dropping by Dagupan City even without any itinerary has become a habit. It was one of those walks around the town moments when we dropped by the city plaza and St. John Cathedral after scouring the fish market in Magsaysay road for an affordable fresh catch.

While some may appreciate a few historical monuments in the area, it’s the free benches shaded by trees which attracts more people. It sure is a good place to catch your breath after walking around down town.

Just a few walks from the plaza is the St. John Cathedral with its neo-classic design appeal. What always catch my attention though are the religious statues towering over each gate post surrounding the church. You’ll be amused to know that the church is also adjacent to a chapel which can serve as your shortcut to the nearby market.

Bangus Festival 2014

It’s almost April by the way. You’ll have more reasons to drop by Dagupan other than these two interesting places. The Bangus Festival 2014 starts on April 1. The activities are listed on the city’s official website. See schedule here
