  • Today afternoon wandering from Quiapo heading Binondo I arrived in front of this church at 15.25. From there 5 minutes would begin a mass and so I restrained myself. A Sung mass of interminable length with a homily in tagalog and partly in English (probably just for me that I was sitting in the front row). The Church was full but not like that of Quiapo I had seen fifteen minutes before. To achieve this you must travel to Quiapo Church an outdoor market filled with stalls and people are barging into in all directions. The Santa Cruz Church dates back to the 16th century and is of a markedly Baroque, but following earthquakes and wars suffered a bad restoration in 1957, but at least it kept the beautiful white façade. Inside it's remarkable copy of the statue of our Lady of the pillar (the original is in Spain). On the dome of the apse there is a bad painting in the middle of which there is a gigantic white lamb.

  • It is a church located in elevated train carriedo station. Exactly stands facing the entrance of Manila's Chinatown. This church is a little round. In the public square Park fountain was relaxed and local people. I think to go sightseeing with the Quiapo Church.
