San Agustin Church, Manila

4.4
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.

  • Even the priest in the Philippines, so loose. Take the turban when inside is important. You don't like to hand out to the belongings. Amazing decorations inside the building.

  • We were married in this church 27 years back. Today we needed to secure copy of our marriage certificate for a couples retreat. It did not take us 15 mins of wait at p50 per copy. The office area is clean and organized. People courteous and efficient. And amenities well managed.
  • If your visiting Manila, the San Agustin Church should be on your list of places to visit. The outside of the church is beautiful, but the true beauty is located inside the church. As of March 2018, the cost was only $4 U.S. to enter the museum portion of the church. Upon entering, you will see incredible paintings, carvings, sculptures, & various other forms of artwork & history. The church itself is remarkable, beautiful, & something you won’t regret.
  • This is a marvelous place, a beautiful spot for worship and prayer. The collection of art exhibited in the various galleries is absolutely remarkable. After my daily meditation pilgrimage, I came in to check out the mind-blowing art collection...
  • When I was in college, they used to say that bones of a certain hero were found here. But alas, when I got there, it was so majestic to look at. A solemn place to think through and thank the Lord.
  • This historic church is quite beautiful. The unfortunate for this church is how dark inside it was. The construction and details on the extremities are awesome considering their origins and era.
