The Church has a very solemn and private feel as soon as you step inside. The Church is one of the few places often has fully booked dates for wedding ceremonies.

Great Baroque stone architecture that have lasted years (built in the 1800's). The museum at the side is informative. The Augustinians have maintained the church and the museum well and i just hope they can continue to do so. There used to be 2 belfries but one was damaged by an earthquake and the plan to rebuild the fallen belfry... More

The outside is not so much different, when when go inside, you may feel very special, so old and solemn, and some special quiet, when I saw so many very cold paintings. One church I like most in Manila

The church's interior is enriched by the collaboration of Spanish and Chinese work of art. By far, the best church I've ever visited in Manila. Sometimes the Church is utilized to celebrate mass or holy matrimony. Whenever there's a mass, guests cannot enter the church, so we were directed to visit the museum first.

We were married in this church in 2002. Oldest church. Marvel at the architecture, the intricate designs. Read the who's who of Old Manila buried in the side walls. See also the museum beside it.

San Agustin Church is officially the oldest church in the Philippines. It is located right inside Intramuros, hence it is not to be missed. Visit the San Agustin museum located within the premises of the church compound to complete your voyage, for a Minimal entrance fee.

It has just been renovated months ago and the church can be considered as one of the tourist spots now. Never miss this church if you're in the Philippines
