The (Malate) Church, is one of the oldest church in the Philippines, that was able to retain its baroque style. I, aside from my family likes to come here because each and every priests in Malate Church knows how to have a good interaction with their parishioners.

The church was under extensive renovations when we visited. It was really nice to escape the street and sit in peace and quiet as well as see all the locals come in to pray.

Just like any other churches, the Malate church is another historical church for anyone to visit. It's located at the roadside and very easy for one to visit. The church is relatively smaller than the churches I visited in Manila but it's the historical value that makes it special. Another attraction you might want to see is just across the... More
