Visit the church- then walk diagonally thru the plaza (towards Starbucks). Walk up the market street. Amazing-- so many stalls and people.

Binondo Church stands tall in the heart of Manila's Chinatown. From the outside, it resembles most churches of that era with its vaulted doors and spires. Inside is a remarkable piece of art--which is all around you. Look up and you'll see marvelous paintings on the ceiling depicting the stations of the cross. The altar is a magnificent work of...

It's a catholic church! You may partake of the body and blood of Christ if you are Catholic, but if you want "fast food" with no commitment other than paying a few pesos, there's lots excellent very close.

Our last church to visit and my first time to visit Binondo Church in Manila. Solemly prayed for my family, relatives and friends and ended our Visita Iglesia 2015 feeling blessed. The Church is beautiful inside and out and with a beautiful fountain outside where you can rest. My kids even throw one peso coins and wish as if its... More

Binondo church is one of the heritage churches in the Philippines, that I've been to, that has amazing facade, walls and color. The interior is really attractive and elegant.

I was there during a wedding which was really nice to see. The church is pretty, San Sebastian is better.

Better inside than outside, it is well worth a visit. It is close to the Divisoria market and to the Chinatown. One may walk from the intramuros or get a jeepney (a small bus) or a tricycle.

let's face iit, you want to see amazing churches in Asia, The Philippines is the place. This one is just over the Jones Bridge from Intromuros, almost in Chinatown. It is quite grand, very airy and in amazingly good shape. Obviously well cared for and a haven from the chaos that is Binondo. Worth sticking your head inside and taking... More
