Resource Descriptions

History

Cimborrio is lying as centerpiece of the Sta. Ana Catholic Cemetery, erected by Filipino labor and supervised by Spanish friars in the year 1700’s. The dome is made of tiles and the walls of stones. The structure is 12 meters in diameter. It has retained its quaint mysterious appeal despite the minor repairs it has undergone in 1980 and 1993.

Architectural Description

Cimborrio is an elevated structure found inside the Sta. Ana Catholic Cemetery. It is made up of adobe stones (same material found in the nearby Sta. Ana Church). The 11 steps from the grade line allow the bottom of the structure to become a grave/tomb. It has two windows and a main door.  A snake carved in stone is placed on top of the door frame. It also has a cross in its apex. 

Inside, there's an all-white concrete altarpiece with three religious images and a cross with Christ's face on the center.

Condition

WITH MINOR DAMAGE (a few or some architectural elements are missing or broken due to neglect, instability or theft)
Description
Based on the recent site inspection, plant growth and vandalism are present in different parts of the structure. Vibrations from the construction of the newly built mall (Vista Mall), located a few meters behind the cemetery, resulted in several cracks on the facade especially in the entry point. Various alterations in the structure such as installation of new aluminum glass door, steel window grills, and new electrical lining caused damages to the integrity and aesthetic of the building.
