it is a place of worship where devotees flocks daily even at night.. a visit to the church makes all prayers answered, thats how powerful the Black nazarene is. the church itself has now modern interior and less of the antique walls and decors. however, in order for one to feel praying, i myself, just close my eyes, and look...

The Quiapo Basilca is the center of the Filipino devotion to the Black Nazarene, a wooden image that has set off a culture of devotion unlike any other in the country.And don't forget Quiapo Fortune Telling Corner and also Quiapo Candle Lighting Ritual

The neighbourhood surrounding this church is a little edgy, but quite safe. There are a lot of beggars and your heart will be broken seeing some of the squalor. The market is interesting and to the left of the church, you find stalls selling ating-ating (magical totems and amulets). The church itself is bright and airy. It is quite new... More

Everytime I travel to Manila, I always find time not to just visit but to hear mass in the Basilica Nazareno to thank the Poong Nazareno for my numerous wishes granted. On that that, I was able to share a little to the "Yolanda survivors" for the 2nd collection made by the church. Going to the church requires a little... More

Really pretty church, even though theres muck everywhere once you step outside! We started by driving by but eventually got out and went for a walk around. If you're into quirky souvenirs, there are plenty of vendors just outside the church

visit only if you are a friend of dirty places with lot's of beggars and hustlers. like so many other so called tourist attractions in the philippines it's run down and the area around the church is not safe for tourist. if filipinos want to attract more tourist, the they have to do much much better.

Old church but it definitely need some restorations to see the old historical things. Compared to other religious historical places in the world it's not so special. But since Manila doesn't have so many attractions it's a place to visit.

Best to avoid going to this vicinity on a Friday is you do not want to be jostled by the crowd. There is almost no room to move, much less walk about.

The Church is in a really busy part of the "old" Manila, and so its both exciting & a little overwhelming walking through all the busy market streets surrounding this area. I was really disappointed though to learn that you can't take a camera in there. I'm a photographer and that often the reason I visit a place to capture... More
