Guided Tour of the Historic San Sebastian Basilica (Manila)

Discover San Sebastian Basilica, the first and only all-metal building in the Philippines, that sits in a quiet pocket of the historic Quiapo district in Manila. A crossroads of history and innovation, the 126-year-old Basilica was constructed by an international village: Belgian steel, German stained windows, a Spanish engineer, and Filipino art students from the turn of the century Philippines artfully transforming the metal interior into a design that stays true to the Gothic Revival style. The guided tour includes access to the church floor, the choir loft, and the hidden spaces not usually accessible to the public, like the attic and the belfries.<br><br>Explore to Restore! You can help us fund the long-overdue restoration of this historic building by booking a tour with us!

We went here with school kids. They had a lot of fun and learning about the past life of Rizal and his family. The only problem here was the they don’t have any parking area. We only parked on side street. But still, that was just a minor issue. All the rest of our experience here great bonding and fun.

Rizal's childhood home. Honestly my first time to visit even though i took all those Rizal subjects back in High School and College. I think its great, especially for the younger ones, to be able to know what Dr. Rizal went through to inspire our freedom. Additional question is whether he's be proud if he sees us and the Philippine society today, or would he shake his head in unbelief?

The house is well preserved. It is smaller than I thought. For lovers of old houses, they will enjoy the visit for sure.

If you’re interested in Filipino history this is a great place to visit and learn about the life of Jose Rizal. The site is not that large but it is fairly well maintained and informative.
