I recommend all Catholics visiting see Quiapo church. I came on Friday during a novena. Although it was in Filipino, it was not difficult to follow along. I would recommend foreigners be careful for pickpockets in the area.

It was very busy when we went, I just felt it was a very powerful feeling of love inside the church which was very busy. It is not as big as many other churches I have been too but it was an amazing feeling to be present in one of the most important churches to the people of the Philippines.There... More

I Like the old style and materials of the building that make every worshiper a solemn prayer and feels the presence of God. One thing more to develop is to make passage to exhaust the heat temperature of the Church during worship hour.

the shopping centers around are great. you'll definitely find great buys just be patient enough to walk around. however be careful too because there are lots of pick pockets around waiting for their next victim.

Everybody in Manila knows about Quiapo church, easy to get to - by taxi, jeepney or a bus. Yet, I do not recommend being too adventurous and walking to that church from other areas of Manila. The Manila area where the Quiapo church is, is known as a bit dangerous for foreigners. Church itself is beautiful and has historical vibe... More

There is no sense of divinity , no god worshipping atmosphere and no welcoming ushers prepared to explain the idolatry of saint worship or the churches teachings.

Your visit is incomplete without going to the "pahalik", an area where one foot of the Nazareno on the altar is exposed and you can touch it. It is located at the back of the church, climb stairs behind the altar.
