What travelers are saying
- Closely associated with the Augustinian presence in the Philippines, this church is one of the oldest churches in the country founded in the 16th century. It has an impressive structure, with amazing frescoes on the ceiling, very rich religious refurbishment, beautiful antique statues of saints, etc. Not to miss is the main altar, the pulpit, the choir loft, and the room on the left of the main altar where the tomb containing the mortal remains of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi (founder of the city of Manila in 1571) is found. With all its cultural wealth to offer and rich history, it is not surprising that this church, dedicated to Saint Paul and not really to Saint Augustine, has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site. It's definitely worth-visiting!Written 11 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I recommend going really early to avoid the long lines. Its probably not worth it if you're really short on time. You'll be able to purchase their products in a lot of other areas that resell them (but of course a bit more Php) like the bus terminals and main tourist attractions.Written 6 January 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The house on display was very impressive. It wasn't difficult to imagine how a privileged family lived in that kind of house. Signs were very detailed and informative.Written 7 January 2020
- Whether or not you’re of the Catholic faith, this a nice place to visit if you’re in Tarlac! I did not go into the monastery, nor were there any events happening at the time of my visit. But the scenery, the ambiance, and views of the rice fields on the way up, we’re all worth it! Plenty of beautiful picture opportunities! The only downside is the ONLY gift shop on the premises. Since there are no other competing gift shops, they pretty much monopolize what they charge. And they do not budge AT ALL, so much for bartering. But even with that remark, all in all, I had a great time. So, if you’re in Tarlac, I would definitely recommend seeing this place!Written 19 January 2020
- It's a Taoist temple without an entrance fee but when we arrived it's closed already though we still took a lot of photos outside the temple. It is similar to the Chinese temple in Baguio.Written 1 October 2020
- Majestically rising up in a square, this church commands attention. Colourful, towering statues are dotted around the perimeter and inside the church. Always busy with worshippers. It is next door to Quiapo Market.Written 6 May 2022
- a visit to lourdes grotto is non-negotiable, i.e., it should always be in our itinerary whenever we are in baguio. climbing the almost 300 steps would be a struggle for the physically unfit but once you reach the end of the stairs, you'd feel like you've accomplished a great feat. actually, there's a parking space at the top so if you choose not to sacrifice your strength, there's a faster way by driving a car.
a new chapel has been erected a few meters from the grotto itself. it is an added serene spot for the devotees who need a respite after a tiring uphill crawl.
candles and flowers can be bought from vendors at the foot of the stairs.Written 22 June 2022
- We often go to Tagaytay, thus this church is one of the favorite to drop by and say prayers and attend mass.
And we happen to attend 1 Misa de Gallo this year. The church decoration is so attractive, choir sings beautifully and the homily really touches my heart not to forget what Fr. Francis Miranda says that when you are going to receive the body of Christ do say Amen and avoid nodding or saying yes, it should be Amen.Written 26 December 2019
- Definitely one of the most important Catholic church in the country. Many Virgin Mary devotees come on a Wednesday. Inside , they kept reminding of the health safety protocols such as social distancing. Meaning patrons are to stay one seat apart from each other. Outside the church are those lining up for the candle prayer section. Also there are those selling prayer fliers , and religious statues as well. Further out are several fast food restaurants and even the Baclaran market. As well see people doing instagram , facebook and tiktok.Written 25 February 2022
- it was here that we got a cove view of sabang and a segment of the pacific ocean. entrance and parking are free and you can choose which view deck is most apt to your liking.
ermita hill has stalls/shops that sell all sorts of souvenir items. some are priced more expensively compared with those found in the town center. but it is still within a reasonable range.
get the best of baler's shoreline, sky and sea in this place.Written 1 May 2019
- Our first visit was in Baccara, Ilocos Norte
where one of the old churches located. One of the enduring
landmarks of the Augustinian friars is the Church of St. Andrew the Apostle in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte.
Together with the bell tower and the convent, the church
was built in 1593 and inaugurated in 1782.
Along with the church, the beautiful belfry was destroyed
by the intensity 7.8 earthquake on August 17, 1983.
It caused the dome to fall down thus gaining the
romanticized title “Dignified Domeless Belltower in Asia.”
(My source of this trivia was the blog of harrybalais.com)
It was historical and amazing place. We ate bagnet (deep-fry pork lechon) with a bagoong (salted fish sauce). Bagnet was one of their food specialty.
We had fun!Written 28 July 2015
- The boring plain Spanish looking exterior is hiding a stunning gilded backdrop inside. The Altar and the high dome yielded one remarkable looking backdrop. Gilded gold glistening high altar and hug frames in the background makes this church look absolutely gorgeous.Written 5 May 2022
- The church is a convent category therefore very solemn place to meditate, pray and connect to God. The place can be your refuge from anxiety, stress and other things life throw your way.Written 20 May 2021
- This is a nice place to visit for your Visita Iglesia as it is airconditioned, spacious (church interior, clean toilets, parking) and with available purified drinking water with dispenser. You can also stroll along the grounds where there are trees and airy.Written 5 July 2019
