Most beautiful one in Manila
Feb 2020
This church is such an amazing place! It imitates the European style, but it incorporates local materials and this is how you get the most amazing windows with Mother of pearl.

Beautiful historic church! No wonder it's the choice for many to get married there. It felt solemn enough and yet you also feel the vibrancy emanating from the church.

Golden treasures

One of the most beautiful churches i have been. My friend's wedding was also held here last August 2019. Despite the heavy rain during the wedding ceremony, surroundings are safe and secured especially the parked cars outside the vicinity. Has a nice lobby for guest and a little reception area. The only thing that I can suggest to further improve accessibility and convenience is to put additional cemented flooring on parkings because of the mud and dirt from heavy rains. Nonetheless, experience was astounding.

Will definitely get a booking for our wedding this 2022.

Oldest church of Manila
Jan 2020
This is the oldest church of Manila within the walls of Intramuros. If you are lucky, you can see some marriages inside.

Awesome!

This church that dates back to the 1500s is quite amazing and I think the oldest church in the Philippines.

I was awestruck by the painted surfaces (walls and curved ceiling panels) that you'd swear were carved stone.

The history is fascinating... read the plaques... the story of the huge bell... and marvel at the resilience of this amazing piece of Filipino history. 🌼

Definitely well worth a visit to this church without a doubt as it has such great history and many icons inside that any guide will be able to explain to you further should you wish to ask.
Recommended - Enjoy.
