I'm not a religious person, but I certainly felt humbled as I looked around this Church. The altar is spectacular and around the Church are nooks and crannies with statues and religious artefacts that certainly make this a thought provoking experience. Well worth a visit.

I'ts one of the churches with that special spirit that leaves you speachless, like some vibes are shimmering through the air. Beautiful place, both as a church and as a museum. Been there in Christmas time, so the impression is magical.

A visit to the San Agustin Church (which includes a museum) has always been instructive for me. Some years back, I had the chance to facilitate a technical assistance project for the museum and got to learn about the architecture, the features of the church as well as the artifacts from 17th to 19th Century Philippines. Now with two children... More

It's a Wow factor ! Didn't expect to see such architecture in an Asian country. A lot of historical artifacts and museum within the church building. Center courtyard is very beautiful too.

I only had a short time to visit as I was on a guided tour. It was very beautiful! There was a family getting married there too, so there is lots of activity.

This religious enclosure has kept a great collection of artifacts and mementos that are a treasure to appreciate for their detail, and the way they reflect the religious devotion by those who crafted them. The amount of objects is quite generous. The renovations made in the galleries is just great. It is very easy to navigate the different floors and... More

Too many tourists that make too much 'whispering' noise. Should have more strict security to remind them that its a holy place and need to respect the people who are there to pray.

Just mind blowing to think that this church is as old as it is. The beautiful carved doors are worth a visit alone. Coming from Australia, it is always mind blowing to get your head around such old monuments and buildings. Certainly worth a stop.
