I took the Smokey Tour (market tour) . The guide spent a lot of time explaining the significance of the church and walking thru the nearby market.

Quiapo church is located in the center of the Quiapo market -- you will need to walk through the throngs of people and booths to actually get to the church (make sure you carry your bag in front of you and watch your pockets!).

Right smack in one of the busiest places in Manila, you can feel Filipino religiosity at its mass level. The Nazareno is truly the savior. Hourly masses in the morning accomodates the devotees. It is orderly despite the crowds. If you want the true feel of Filipino devotion, check this church out. It is not the perfumed, airconditioned kind of... More

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

Quiapo Church has been a landmark for the Catholic Faith in the Philippines, being the only Catholic country in Asia. The church is located in the center of Manila, the former capital of the Philippines. The old Central Business District in the 1940's till the 1960's was located near the Church, Escolta, Sta. Cruz, Binondo. Thus, Quiapo church is always... More

Beware of pickpockets and keep your cellphone. A lot of people are going to this place because of the prices are really low. Quiapo church is very accessible. You need to walk and walk. Parking cars are really hard. If you happen ti go there, you can park at Isetan Department store in Recto. They have pay parking space. Then... 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
