San Agustin Church, Manila

4.4
#1 of 39 in Museums in Metro Manila
Architectural Building Museum
Part of a World Heritage Site with three other Baroque churches, San Agustin Church stands within Manila’s Intramuros, the second oldest church in the country. Completed in 1587, the church takes after some Augustinian-built churches in Mexico, testifying to the area's Spanish colonial heritage. Great trompe l’oeil murals on the ceiling, 14 side chapels, classical marble columns, an intricate rose window, carved doors, and a large garden make this place a must-visit and a great escape from the busy city. While on site, visit the museum adjacent to the church, which details the edifice’s rich history.

  • History lovers should never miss visiting this place... the oldest church in the Philippines! Sadly, from the bright pink it is not colored dull gray.
  • One of the oldest catholic church in the Philippines. Nice architecture and enough parking space. The location is also historic as it is within the walled city of Intramuros during the spanish colonial times.
