Binondo Church, Manila

#9 of 22 in Historic Sites in Manila
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Venture into Binondo Church, a catholic establishment which managed to withstand centuries of damage from wars and natural disasters. The bell tower remains the only original part of the church still standing strong. Despite enduring constant destruction and damage, the church's renovations sought to retain the original 16th century architecture with various enhancements. Take a closer look at the bright renaissance style murals that decorate the ceilings of the church which complement the equally impressive and detailed stained glass windows.

Where to stay in Manila

Manila has the full spectrum of hospitality options, from highly affordable hostels you can book on the spot to luxury four- and five-star resorts.
