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.

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

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.
