Dipolog: Holy Rosary Cathedral & Magsaysay Park

we messed up with our original itinerary... hehehe we're supposed to do the Dipolog tour in Day1 but opted to go to Linabo peak instead... we decided to move the Dipolog tour on our last day before we head back to Zamboanga... only when we arrived at the Holy Rosary Cathedral did we realized it was not a good time since it was a sunday and mass is scheduled almost every hour... :D

but i still want to photograph the church. :D i love how it looks from the outside... i think this facade is just new, iv seen photos on the net without these bricks yet...i like the effect of the arches.

even with the mass going on...i've tried to conquer my "hiya" so i can see and photograph the altar even from a distance... this altar was designed by Rizal. :-)

i'm not sure about who designed the ceiling and other would carvings though... hehehe but i love how it all matches together and gives a grand aura inside the church. :-)

directly in front of the church was the Magsaysay Park... typical park except that they have a mini-Jurassic Park (where the dinasaours are getting their skin off already) and a mini-ampitheater.... we were already rushing around so i didn't to take photos already.... but when we saw these colorful giant shoes.... we just really have to stop... hehe :D
