#11 of 22 in Historic Sites in Manila
Lookout Religious Site
Malate Church stands as a 16th century Baroque church whose patroness saint is Nuestra Senora de los Remedios (Our Lady of Remedies). A statue of the Lady stands at the altar and looks over the whole church. The statue, only 60 cm (2 ft) tall, arrived in the Phillipines from Spain in 1624, and represents the Virgin Mary as protector of women and children. The ornate design of the facade, madeof stone, shows an interplay between Muslim design and Mexican baroque. Our Manila tourist route planner makes visiting Malate Church and other Manila attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • On a recent stay in Malate I was finally able to visit this beautiful church. It is easy to walk to but its proximity to the street makes getting a photo difficult. Take the time to visit.  more »

  • Great lo ation and easily accesible via Roxas Blvd. Lots of places to eat nearby after attending church services.
  • A church quite easy and simple with windows and doors all opnened, it is my first time enjoyed fresh open air and pleasant warm winds in a church. SO Aadorable!
  • We visited this old church few years back with friends from kota kinabalu, sabah. We loved this church it is very peaceful can feel the spiritual calm inside and mentally at ease...awesome indeed..
  • I associate Malate Catholic Church with my ist 6yrs of teaching there in Malate Catholic School...its there where we held our monthly masses,and the other school events where our students were trained to show proper decorum. I miss the school and i miss this beautiful church of my younger days...
  • It looks old. First time I heard mass here. Not too crowded on the 12 nn mass. Thanks for having wall fans.
