Fascinating Facade

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

The Binondo Church was built by the Dominicans in the 16th century. It is located along the busy street of Quintin Paredes so you won't miss this on your way to Divisoria if coming from Escolta. The beautiful altar resembles that of the St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Today, it has been renamed as The Minor Basilica of Saint Lorenzo... More

The Binondo Church was given a facelift this year and many critics have said it was done the wrong way. Personally i would have preferred how it looked before the renovation. The inside of the Church is tacky in my opinion. The ceiling paintings were done in a manner that doesn't emphasize class Despite the changes to the Church, the... More

Located at Quentin Paredes St., Plaza Calderon de la Barca in Binondo, its intricately designed interior reflects the Hispanic culture that has not only influenced the Filipinos but also our Chinese brothers and sisters who have come to settle in our motherland. I go to this church twice a month to pray with family nor friends. :)
