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

Old Catholic Churches are in abundance here in the Philippines. Barasoain Church is one of the few that kept the historical feel. As a Marian devotee, I have made it a must to visit a Carmelite church whenever I get the chance.

I attended dawn mass and i havent been to this place since 1997; and theyve renovated the place. Beautiful. Plus supporting the local tourism scene isnt such a bad idea.

It was pretty interesting visiting here. It's a really old church with lots of big statues everywhere, including one in the courtyard dedicated to Pope John Paull II. There's a museum attached to the church which tells the history of the Filipino revolution and their struggles against both Spanish and American colonization.

The Barasoain Church will always be an important part of Filipino history and Filipino lives. Not counting the significant events that occurred here through the course of history, the structure itself plays a huge part in the cultural development of Filipinos since it was one of the religious centers during the Spanish colonial era. The construction of the church was... More
