i remember seeing this Church in the old ten peso bill in my younger years. i recall reading about this place of worship as the site where the Malolos constiution was first drafted. i took it all for granted. never considered its relevance until i felt how sacred it was to walk on its grounds.

Barasoain Church has a strong facade that is very photogenic. wood is dominant in the interiors decorated with paintings and wall papers. white and gold male up its color motif inside.

parking fee of 20 pesos is collected upon entrance. there are a lot of spaces available but would become scarce during peak hours.

would have earned a perfect five if airconditioning units are installed inside the Church.

Almost every Filipino has heard about this church primarily because of some significant events in Philippine history associated with it. But apart from this, the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church (aka the Barasoain Church) built in 1888 is a lovely structure in itself, architecturally speaking. I particularly like its interior, painted in white with gold accents, the boxed ceiling, the pulpit, and the "retablo" by the main altar. Also worth-visiting is the courtyard adjacent to it and the diocesan museum of Malolos.

Still one of the best church for me in terms of history and culture. Big space for parking. Ideal for a memorable wedding.

A visit to Malolos wouldn't be complete without dropping by this church that once played a crucial role in the history of the Philippines. It's external structure is currently under renovation, but it's interior is not. Hence, you can still admire its architectural beauty, its ornate ceiling with lovely chandeliers, its wonderful "retablo", its old wooden pulpit and confessional boxes, and so forth. Entrance is by one of the side doors since the main doors are closed for now. Don't miss to read the historical markers on the façade in order to appreciate the place more and its historical value. Unfortunately, also the church museum is closed for renovation.

The place is still a functioning church were you can hear mass on Sundays. The place is good for pictorials because of its historical value. Better go there on weekdays, there are less people and more parking available. Public transport is available nearby. They have a museum with free entrance at the old monastery beside the church. Expect traffic going to and from the church as the road leading to it is just two lanes.

I will always come back to this church. Not only that this is a historical church for our heritage but also, this is the church where we wed. The location is accessible, with enough parking space and it's at the center of the city. When hearing mass on weekends, they offer quite a few time schedules and also one conducted in English.

Did you know that #Barasoain was coined from the term "Baras ng Suwail" which means "dungeon of the defiant" because the Church used to be a meeting place for anti-Spanish and anti-colonial illustrados......

Took a little time off work to visit Barasoain since it was a short drive away from where my meeting was. I went in mid-afternoon and read through all of the things available inside the church for tourists to enjoy. It was very pleasant to visit the site where the First Philippine Constitution was drafted. If you have more time, give their museum a visit as well.

I was privileged enough to have visited Barasoain Church for the second time around.

This time, I was invited by the Local Government Unit of Malolos City in Bulacan to talk to their young people that was staged on this one of the most popular and historical churches in the Philippines. The church was the place where the First Philippine Republic was created.

I came early to the church and that spare time gave me the opportunity to roam around the church vicinity and visit its museum.

I was lucky (or shall I say blessed) enough to have witnessed the showcase of Niños – different images of Jesus when He was still a child. The museum showcased more than 300 replicas of Jesus the Child in different forms and looks.

Really, a place of worship and history.
