Guided Tour of the Historic San Sebastian Basilica (Manila)

Discover San Sebastian Basilica, the first and only all-metal building in the Philippines, that sits in a quiet pocket of the historic Quiapo district in Manila. A crossroads of history and innovation, the 126-year-old Basilica was constructed by an international village: Belgian steel, German stained windows, a Spanish engineer, and Filipino art students from the turn of the century Philippines artfully transforming the metal interior into a design that stays true to the Gothic Revival style. The guided tour includes access to the church floor, the choir loft, and the hidden spaces not usually accessible to the public, like the attic and the belfries.<br><br>Explore to Restore! You can help us fund the long-overdue restoration of this historic building by booking a tour with us!

I've been living in the area for around 13 years, and it was on my 6th year that I get to enjoy birding here, when I learned basic photography. I can share with you several birding spots, not usually visited by visiting birders. I learned about these just a year ago as well. Early morning walks before going to the office get me more acquainted of the bird species in the area. Mt. Makiling is a great birding site with a lot of endemic birds to see! It's just an hour away from Metro Manila.

Mt Makiling is a great place to take the family for a day trip out of Manila. Pack a picnic and take lots of water to drink and head up the mountain. Walk around the pathways taking in the amazing jungle space and get up close to incredible flowers and plants. The pathways can be slippery if it has been raining so be sure to wear suitable shoes. There is an entry fee, so be sure to take some cash. There are sari-saris on the drive up and peddlers selling ice lollies which are delicious and refreshing in the steamy tropical heat.

It is wonderful to walk or bike up to the end of the tarmac section. Biking is quite strenuous uphill but an absolute breeze when coming down. There is a great variety of vegetation and it offers a shady hike in the heat of the area.

Mt. Makiling is a hiking and biking paradise, complemented by a lush forest, giant trees, unspoiled and clean natural spring water, awesome rock formation, and a mud spring which is said to be the 'crater' of this dormant volcano, Mt Makiling. It is a favorite for both hiking beginners and afficionados, and also proves to be a popular and exciting biking trail. UPLB has done a great deal in preserving the beautiful and pristine condition of this so-called mystic mountain.
