very nice church with antiques. Its a very old one but normally full on Sundays and Fridays. I like walking around it because of stores that sells cheap souvenir.

Binondo Church is located in the Manila's China Town. The church itself has a beautiful interior, which was quite a surprise since it is not located in a fancy area (the China Town is all messed-up and dirty).

I wish they had just maintained the church's previous look. The new paint job does not do justice to the architecture and history of the church, instead making it look rather tacky.

We were toured around Binondo & what you can see aside from the traffic & structural repairs were the areas full of chinese characters & the grand Binondo church. It is located in the center of the bustling chinese city which faces the vast plaza & commercial hubs. If you want to feel chinese, you will definitely come to this... More

Well, I went during festivities so it was crowded. But like all churches, it has its own unique quality to it. It is being renovated to look better and I guess to make it safer for people. But unfortunately the renovations kinda takes away from the old natural look.

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.
