First thing you'll notice upon entering is the pink and bright interiors of the church, the beautiful paintings and wood carves. Perfect place if you're looking for a solemn spot. Just a reminder, taking photos while the mass is on-going is prohibited.

Hi Nigel! No, they are different churches. While they are in the same city, Manila, they are quite a distance from each other.
