LIPA CATHEDRAL: The Metropolitan Cathedral of San Sebastian

I had to push my lower jaw up with my hand. I didn’t recognize that the whole time I was looking up, admiring the huge, intricately painted circular dome crowning the Lipa Cathedral, that my mouth had been wide open in awe. The bad Traveler was one of the only few people inside. It was chilly as well as dim inside the Cathedral, like in most huge churches, as well as the magnificent dome seemed to be the most well-lit part of the building. In fact, the dome itself illuminated the place, as most of the light inside came with its little windows, adding marvel to its already grand design.

But as one saying goes, this dome is just the tip of the iceberg.

Msgr. Alejandro Olalia, however, led the restoration of this extremely special church in the 1950s. many aspects had been added as well as brought back with the years.

But its history isn’t the only interesting thing about the Cathedral.

Architecture as well as Design

The Lipa Cathedral was built in the Romanesque tradition. It has huge circular dome, giant walls as well as columns, balconies, as well as arches. Standing proudly in front of the church is a bell tower, which, like the dome, is embellished with moldings.

The primary Hall is surrounded by a series of arches. The carefully arranged pews type a sea of wooden linear pattern that lies beneath the chandeliers, illuminating the church. The aisle dividing the pews lead to the altar, bathing in the spotlight provided by the clerestory of the dome above. The ceiling — including the pendentives as well as intrados — is painted with pictures of saints.

In one corner of the primary Hall is a tableau depicting the Paschal mystery. In the opposite corner is a winding stairway that links the ground floor to the balcony, where the choir stays.
