The Tuguegarao Cathedral stands tall and proud as the biggest church in the Cagayan Valley. Thanks to the Dominicans that visited the region during the 1600. The Cathedral was created by Rev. Antonio Lobato on 1761, with the help of the faithful the church was completed 6 years later in 1767.

The Diocese was not establish until the 10th of April 1910 by Pope Pius X, where he ordained Mon Mauricio P. Foley as the first Archbishop of the region on the 9th of December 1911. Like all the churches in the region the cathedral was damaged by the war and was restored just recently.
