Enlarged in 1672 by Father Miguel Perciva with the addition of two wings giving the church the form of a cross. In 1850, Father Juan Antonio Marzo built the principal nave and the convent and remodelled the five altars. Destroyed by fire on 26 January 1945 during the liberation.

  1. Cathedral of Our Lady of Maulawin is an Aglipayan Church (Iglesia Filipina Independiente) and not a Roman Catholic Church.
