  • It is a roman catholic church and one of the old churches in the Philippines. An important historical place in old manila. A place of worship for the devoted catholics. The church is accessible from LRT carriedo station also bus and PUV via Sta. Cruz.
  • This church is pretty close to Quiapo, located in Manila Chinatown district. I love the ambiance, perhaps it is not very crowded in the weekdays. The place is solemn and ideal place for me to reflect and pray. Plus, I love looking at the antique structures and the images of Jesus, Mama Mary and the Saints since it has a historical significance in our heritage.
  • Good place, with pay parking area. Religious people always go to this place.
  • A baroque style church, based on the saints inside the church is previously manned by Dominican friars. It survived the second world war, it is renovated early in 2010s. The interior is rather dark and gloomy. One of the unique feature of the church is the funerary chapel lined with niches where the wealthy filipinos during the colonial period are buried, the chapel is located near the entrance of the church on the right.
  • Nice building. Ugly people inside rude and crazy

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. Opt to stay in mid-range and upscale hotels clustered around the central business district, or score sea views at the resorts facing Manila Bay. If you choose to go for the budget-friendlier hostel, note that many have large dorm rooms with many bunk beds, catering primarily to job-seekers, while others are designed for young backpackers looking to make new friends.
