This is a church with a long history. It was bombed by the US and the Japanese and it is worth reading the plaque and imagine the horror nearly 70 years ago. The church is being renovated and it is looking really nice. A busy place in down-town Manila. maybe the only place to will find some quiet!

Church was down the road from our hotel and we loved who quiet and calm it was inside even with a busy road just outside. Down side would be all the beggers trying to pick pocket worshippers! But nothing that can't be handled with some caution

Went to Mass with my aunt who lives nearby. I appreciate the prepared homily shared by the priest presider and learned much from it.

This is a good site to visit to get a little more sense of the history for this area. The church is now being renovated, so it is not accessible as before, but still worth a visit. I liked the signs which are posted inside and have attached a photo.

It was located at the back of Raja Sulayman and the church was facing towards Manila Bay. It was a beautiful church very old and full of history. This is perfect for a wedding We don’t have any chance to get inside because it was closed during our visit.

read the plaque by the massive doors of the church and learn about the church's magnificent history. just a few steps from the sculpture and fountain of raja sulayman, malate church is a sight to behold. it's not large like other churches in manila, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in elegance and history. dating back...

This is a beautiful traditional church. I may be biased because my grandparents were married here back in the forties, but it is a nice serene place to reflect and pray. Great location right by the water, and there is a nice plaza/park out front.
