The Gate To Palace of Archbishop of Caceres

The gate opens up and lead to the Archbishop’s Palace, the official residence of the Archbishop of Caceres in Elias Angeles street in the city of Naga.

One of the pioneer dioceses in the Philippines, Caceres was canonically erected in August 14, 1595 with the approval of Pope Clement VIII, together with Cebu (in southern Philippines) and Nueva Segovia (Ilocos, northern Philippines), when Manila was elevated to an archbishopric. The original territory covers the entire Bicol region, the provinces of Quezon, Batangas, and Isabela in north Luzon.

It was elevated to an archdiocese on June 29, 1951; now it is the Metropolitan See with the Dioceses of Daet, Legaspi, Virac, Sorsogon, Masbate and the Prelature of Libmanan as suffragans. Its titular saint is St. Peter the Baptist.

The current archbishop, and the 32nd occupant of the palace is Most Reverend Leonardo Z. Legazpi, OP.
