The church has seen many renovations but tried to maintain its spanish historian culture.Although looks old from outside,it is very attractive, well maintained multistoreyed religeous building.It may not be as tremendous and decorative as many other churches in europe and russia,but still worth visiting with a nearby museum in same location.One should visit this place.

There are two well-known churches inside intramuros and one of them is San Agustin church. If you're into history, this church is exactly what you'll want to visit. Though i must warn, it's not always open to the public, but luckily the museum located right beside it is always open. The church is beautiful. It has maintained it's old world... More

Having been built in the 1500s, this Church is one the oldest - if not the oldest - inside the Walled City or Intramuros. Its most striking feature for me are the massive and ornately carved wooden entrance doors. The Church has its own museum. There is a beautiful garden right behind the museum which used to be a popular... More

I lived in Manila and I've known this church. Some of my friends wed on this church. Love the interiors and classic Spanish Barroque styled altar, ceilings, walls. It reminisced the Spanish era in this modern time. Classy, Elegant, Stunning, and Serene.

Being from the US, I haven't seen anything more ancient than the 1800's. All of the old churches in the Philippines are absolutely worth seeing! Absolutely breath taking, historic, and makes you feel quite reverent and in awe. You don't even have to stay too long, but definitely worth the trip. Just avoid all the peddlers trying to give you... More
