The Augustinians built a church in a distinctive Baroque architecture with the bell tower situated a distance away from the main church building. At the back side of the cathedral is the Museo San Pablo which is claimed as the first and only museum in the region committed to conservation of religious heritage through a distinct faith-culture approach.  East of the cathedral is the 18th century Arzobispado, the official residence of the Archbishop of Nueva Segovia. In 1889, the building served as headquarters to General Emilio Aguinaldo. The arzobispado currently houses the Museo Nueva Segovia which features ecclesiastical artifacts and archdiocesan archives. Off to the side of the cathedral is Plaza Burgos, a landmark tribute to the city’s most illustrious at the same time tragic citizen, Padre Jose Burgos of the Gomburza triumvirate. The execution of priests Gomez, Burgos and Zamora (hence GOM-BUR-ZA) in 1872 was a prelude to the war of independence during the generation that followed.
