Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag, Manaoag

Admire the towering edifice of Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag, a major 17th-century Roman Catholic pilgrimage site. Fourteen statues sit upon a pedestal and flank either side of your path as you approach the cathedral's three-story facade and even taller bell tower. Step through the tall archways and into the holy structure, where you'll find a contrastingly small interior, with a narrow aisle and small wooden pews under a dome roof. At the altar, look for the 17th-century image of the Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus.

  • After a 6 months on board far from my mom. It was my mom's wish to come and visit this place so from San Mateo Rizal we woke up early to get a bus from Cubao. From San Mateo we took jeepney to Philcoa...  more »
  • On Palm Sunday, we came from Rosario, La Union to The Holy Shrine of Our Lady of Manaoag. It was less than an hour drive. The parking was not sooo bad, though a lot of visitors. We purchased palms to ...  more »
  • You know when you’re near because the traffic slows down, more souvenir shops pop up and random men start barking at your car asking if you need parking space. Best to arrive early to avoid the crowds...  more »

  • I came to this miraculous church with my lovely lady and her family on a pilgrimage in a rental car in June 2014. It was a deeply meaningful trip for me in my first summer without Mom...
  • This is an old historic church with high ceiling and gigantic paintings on the walls were you can still feel the Spanish era. Went here last May 14, 2018 and the road coming from the backdoor (coastal road) of the church is under repair (not passable) so better take the Binalonan-Dagupan highway directly. If you will use WAZE, try to type “Mang Inasal Manaog…” it will lead you in front of the Shrine and not the coastal road. Paid 50php for the parking.
  • January 1 visit was surprisingly "good" with hundreds of visitors and devotees (not in thousands!) in and outside the church. Parking is still difficult if you want to be within few meters of the church. There are open parking areas being rented for 50 pesos within 100 meters away. So better to just park and walk to save 30 to 45 mins of waiting.
  • Good facilities. The staff are very helpful and polite.
  • one of the most visited religious place in the Philippines. every first sunday of the month devotees gathered here for their prayers.
