In the heart of Lipa City lies the century old cathedral of San Sebastian. For most of the batanggenyo’s, they call this simply “katedral”. It is seat of the Archdiocese of Batangas and the dioceses of Lucena, Infanta, and Calapan. It is always filled with people especially during Sundays and Holy Celebration. You will seldom find this place empty of pilgrims.

San Sebastian is commemorated every 20th of January. It is a big celebration for Lipeno’s and expect a lot of activities during this day. In terms of handaan, bumabaha dito pag fiesta.
