One dies tire of seeing a lot of religious buildings while away but this one is worth the time. This magnificent stone church was built in1606 and the interior of this UNESCO World Heritage Site is stunning, especially the baroque altar. A must see.

Beautiful church from inside and outside in a peaceful setting. San Agustin was designated as one of the World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993.

I love this church. I came here last September 2016. When I arrived it was still closed. I waited for almost 30 minutes before they opened the doors. It was my first time to visit. I loved the architecture. The place was huge. Must visit.

The San Agustin church is just down the road from the Manila Cathedral. It is a magnificent church and has a very extensive museum beside the church itself.

16th century church built by the Agustinian order. The inside is beautiful and ornately decorated, comparable to those you will find in the Americas and Europe. A must-see if visiting the Intramuros area. Attached to the church is the museum. Perhaps the best one in the Philippines. Displays of Philippine culture, history and treasures that were documented and collected by... More

I was amazed at how large this Church was and that it was also a museum. I noticed that many visitors only went into the church but not all the rooms each of which housed a large number of antique collections. They were so interesting I spent almost 3 hours just looking at the exhibits. No tour guides but all... More

Stone church built during the Spanish occupation. It's around 450 years old. It use to towers on both sides of the main wooden entrance but the left one collapsed and wasn't rebuilt. As you can see from the pic the right side is still standing.

We were staying in Hotel Durban in Makati on our first day in Philippines. Makati was too clean and modern with skyscrapers, shopping malls and parks that I found it was just too plain to be challenging compared to what Singapore looks like. So, the next day, I ventured out to Intramurous and Chinatown with intent to explore the historic... More
