We walked much of Intramuros and I was unimpressed by this church. It was rather dowdy and the external reliefs were badly weathered (or repaired). A mass was on and no photography was allowed. Disappointing. Internally I have seen better in Jagna, Bohol ... Worth a drop in I suppose.

Religious attractions must be visited in any city you go to. The San Agustin Church is a must visit. Great place and architecture.

As church attendance is usually done on Sundays, don't visit the church on a Sunday. Church/mass is usually occurring or a wedding is in procession and you aren't allowed photographs.

San Agustin Church, the oldest Stone church i n Manila, can be found in Intramuros. It´s a beautiful church both outside and inside and well worth a visit.

Much more than I expected with several excellent displays. A beautiful church with a long history that is probably a highlight of the otherwise drab and dirty Intramuros area. Disappointing that photography was not allowed in the exhibition rooms, but the church itself and the hallways are open. A very peaceful place with almost no one there if you go... More
