Boac Cathedral or Simbahan ng Boac

The Simbahan ng Boac or Boac Cathedral built in 1792 in Boac, Marinduque.

The Cathedral was built in honor of Birhen ng Biglang Awa, who the locals consider as their defender from the pirate attacks in the 18th century. The location of the Cathedral at the highest point of the town and its structure as a fortress church was able to protect and secure the town and its people.

Standing for more than two hundred years and serving as a witness to the long history of Marinduque, the Boac Cathedral was recognized as an Important Cultural Property by the National Museum in 2018.
