The Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod is the main structure in the SM Seaside Complex, resounding a work on during Spanish occasions when towns would be worked around a congregation. The Chapel was given by Mr. also, Mrs. Henry Sy, Sr. to the Archdiocese of Cebu, and is devoted to San Pedro Calungsod, the main Visayan holy person, who is viewed as a good example for the young. Martyred in Guam for his evangelist work in 1672, the youthful holy person was glorified by Blessed Pope John Paul II on March 5, 2000. San Pedro Calungsod was consecrated by Pope Benedict XVI at Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City on October 21, 2012.
Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod
Planned by US-based Architect Carlos Arnaiz, the Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod can suit up to 800 individuals and sits on a raised 5,001 square-meter-part inside the SM Seaside Complex. The structure for the sanctuary is implied as tribute to Cebu's dynamic soul. The structure has 100 dividers, each with a novel stature and width so they appear to be practically similar to individuals. No two are the equivalent but then they are altogether associated in the way that they exist together as a bunch. The dividers meet up to shape a sort of assembly, and inside it are assistant spaces for a baptistery, a veneration house of prayer, supplication specialties, the sacristy, 14 stations of the cross, and even a peaceful space for kids. A multipurpose region for chapel capacities is situated underneath.
This contemporary bit of engineering bears witness to Cebu's turning into the core of Philippine plan culture—open, energetic, yet unwinding in a soul of cosmopolitan trade. The structure is grounded on a long history of religious design wherein light and structure cooperate to move. But then, the plan is really contemporary, cutting edge, and relevant.
