Just passed by here after attending an Ester Egg Hunt at a nearby hotel. Been ages since I have been and it really felt good to be back again :)

For such a big structure, inside the Binondo Church is solemn and conducive to prayer and meditation. The noise outside doesn't penetrate its walls.

Beautiful Catholic church right in Chinatown! Very nice inside. I appreciate that it does not have near the amount of gold decorations that so many have

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.

The first thing you will notice is its pink interior design and paintings. A big church and ideal for couples who would love to have a pink wedding.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Binondo and Divisoria, the San Lorenzo Ruiz Church in the heart of the business & trade district of Manila provides tranquil space for quiet meditation. Do drop by to experience quiet time with our Lord

This church has recently been renovated and is a perfect spot for some nice pictures. Philippines is never short of churches and historical building but this church in the heart of Chinatown is pretty impressive. Remember to bring along your camera when you are here.
