a beautiful church, the walls seem to talk to you, but it looks rundown but worth a visit! Be careful of beggars around the church.

With the scaffolding recently dismantled, the restored stonework on the Church's exterior now looks absolutely. Great to see the Catholic community maintaining such an historic Church with its deep historical and cultural ties to Philippines, notwithstanding its continuing consecrated use as a home for Jesus Christ and His many followers.

Old church, included in the usual organized "church tours" schedule. In walking distance from the Rizal Park.

Malate Church is located within the "red-light" district of Manila. Since this church is dedicated to Nuestra Señora de los Remedios (Our Lady of Remedies), the patroness of childbirth I think the location is fitting to remind people that abortion is a sin.

Most of the priests appear to be from Ireland, it is fun to hear the Irish accent among the Filipino. Beautiful old church. As far as I can tell, no aircon so keep that in mind.

Have monitors in which church-goers can follow the mass and pray along with the congregation. You have to go early for you to be able to be seated as the Church becomes packed. Had to visit this church as we used to come here every Sunday way back 1980's when we lived in Malate with our late Grandmother.
