This circa 1630 church is a must visit for history buffs, being the site of the First Philippine Republic (23 January 1899). This is also where the First Philippine Congress was convened (15 September 1898) and where the Malolos Constitution was drafted. The convent area houses 2 museums -- the Ecclesiastical Museum and the Light and Sound Museum. Entrance is... More

We brought my mother-in-law for 3 reasons: to visit the historical place, to pray and to pay homage to the relic of Saint Pope John Paul II

A place of worship and strengthening of faith, The Barasoaian Church is also replete with historical significance. There are two museums which you can visit . This is where there is no separation of the Church and State.

Getting better everytime you visit! The historical value has be restored higher than before. The church itself is not better. However the museum's feature of lights and sound has deteriorated maybe due to low funding. The garden is still a cool resting spot while offereing the view of old architecture. Your only problem here are the beggars. Security doesn't seem... More

We planned a short trip to Barasoain Church - due to the traffic coding rules in Manila - and we were very glad we spent some time here. Arriving from the McArthur Expressway head into Paseo del Congreso - and you can park at the church (I think it was 20 pesos). The facade of the church is quite typical... More

Although there are signs of restoration, the church still boasts of its old heritage. Nice for church weddings and the patio for receptions.

The perfect time to do sightseeing and pictorial for this wonderful place in Malolos is during weekdays (specifically from Monday to Thursday) from 8:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. This is to get the best light coming from the sun, adding to its charm and to avoid being burned by scorching heat. Even an amateur photographer can get the best shot... More

Went here at night, and it was close, the outside of the church is amazing. You'll feel that this church has been to many events in the history. Tip: dont come late at night
