If you want to see raw and unvarnished devotion Filipino - style, trek to Quiapo on Fridays where you will see devotees pray and plea for small miracles, general well - being and good luck. The faithful come in their Black Nazarene shirts. Masses start early. On most Fridays, Bishop Bacani celebrates the 7:00 am Mass. Masses are in the... More

You go to Quiapo to visit the church, which is pretty significant, tour the market, which is very authentic, and to roam the streets behind the church, which is the epicenter of optometry techs, where the country outsources their eyeglass manufacturing. On any given day, there are people in church, either praying or attending mass. The church is nice, the... More

The design of the house is like open place where there is an entrance on both side. Plenty of chairs and you can hear the noisy outside but still can manage to have a quiet... More

Quiapo Church is one of the famous Catholic Churches in the Philippines and is considered as one of the famous landmarks in Metro Manila. Aside from the fact that this area is always part of the rallies but still the management knows how to handle those activities to protect the church.

The church is interesting to see, both outside and inside. A statue of the Black Nazarene is located outside, a site of devotion for the locals. A very crowded marketplace just outside the church makes the place interesting. Often it is just hard to get through, the place can be packed! The locals do not recommend the place for a... More

It is a holy place of worship for 4 centuries .Always crowded, one out of ten is a member of pickpocket gang.They can steal/ pick your wallet, purse, cellphone in 3 seconds. Travel in groups, avoid crowd, especially at the last blessing after the mass when all rush to the altar.BEWARE!

Very organized, there are some railings on the aisles to have a more organized flow of people taking communion. There are also some security on patrol, reminding people to watch their belongings, and sometimes assisting people looking for directions. It is close to the street though so the mass is interrupted by loud noises from jeepneys and other vehicles. Also... More
