The cathedral is quite beautiful. The inside is quite peaceful. You can visit this along with Intramuros.

Lovely church both from a design and interior perspective. However, the many touts/vendors outside take away from the experience. I do not need to ride a horse buggy,nor buy a silver cross, nor etc etc etc

You can enter inside the church, and take photo as many as you want. Every single corner is free for photography. You don't need special dress code to visit Manila Cathedral. This holy place give us a short story of milestone year by year.

Dating to 1581 but rebuilt 7 times, including massive reconstruction after it was destroyed in World War II, this edifice features impressive stained glass windows and a monumental pipe organ. It's located on a former bullring site in Plaza Roma. Don't miss a visit.
