place for christian worship, serene and clean; noon time when we were there seems to be the good time to visit it because it is not crowded.

Hard to get in because there always seems to be some huge service going on. The area around it is crowded all of the time, dirty, chaotic, and not too safe. I was content to see it from the outside.

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.

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.
