Visiting The San Agustin church is like looking back at Philippine history. Imagine when the Spanish arrived and brought Christianity to the land. Look at the tombs of famous Filipinos all over the church and behind the church a sort of columbary of old. hang around and you may even see a wedding taking place as this is a favorite... More

Stopped here as part of a tour with Yolo Travel. Excellent and beautiful old church in Intramuros Manila. Also, the museum and exhibits are excellent and well worth an hour to look at.

This looked like a beautiful Church. When we visited it was very disappointing as the church has been closed and security were not letting anyone into the church. There as a wedding in progress so we didn't get in the front door. Being a church of God the doors should never be shut.

Every church in the Phil is how a church should be..... This one also has a decent museum which you can walk through. The manila Cathedral is also right next to this Church. As is Intramurous. You can spend a day doing all 3 and all 3 are within 5 minutes of each other. Catholics will especially appreciate this.

I came here expecting this to be a tourism site, you know like a museum. I was wrong! St Agustin is still a active church that hosts masses every Sunday. Many of the artifacts on display has no description, thus while the place is historic I was just cant relate.... The architecture is still worth the trip, it's unique in... More

Interesting to note that this church, one of the only 4 Baroque churches in the Philippines included in the UNESCO World Heritage was supposedly the only structure to survive the WW2 bombings in Manila
