The church is mark as National Historical place. Consecrated 1588, with a very long aisle. Though the inside facade of the church is renovated so the original walls are already banished. It is along the busiest road with lots of vehicle passing so be careful.. How to get there: At Pasay Taft, look for jeep bound to Quiapo- Mabini route... More

A walk down Manila bay and a visit to Malate on a safe sunny day is plesant if one is prepared to face the poor conditions of the area. Malate has an interesting history dating back to the Spanish and later to the arrival of the British in the area in the 18th century
