San Sebastian Cathedral Bells

leave a comment »

Donated 146 years ago, Bacolod Parish Priest Father Mariano Avila, donated the large bell of Bacolod City’s San Sebastian Cathedral.

24 years later, a smaller bell was installed.

The bells were used to warn the city of revolution in 1898.

Cathedral tower reconstruction forced the bells to be lowered in 1969.
