St.Agustin Church is always the first choice for weddings. It is advisable to book your wedding date six months to 12 months ahead. Prominent families from Manila always subscribe to getting wed here because it's one historic place and it is known traditionally as a foremost Church to-go-to to wed in. Because it is located in a commercial as well... More

私が訪問した時は、ちょうどこの教会で結婚式が挙行されていました。最初、入口の警備員に観光客はご遠慮くださいと入場を断られましたが、粘ったところ、歩き回らず、静かに見学するなら入って良いと許可を得ました。フィリピンはアジアでは珍しく、国民の80%以上がカトリック教徒と言われていますが、そのお国柄を体感することができました。 When I visited the San Agustin Church, a wedding ceremony was implementing there. A guard ordered not to enter into the church because I was a tourist, but I requested to enter into it persistently, I would be permitted to join it if you did't walk around and observed quietly. There are Catholic more than 80 percent in the... More

This is biggest church, with the huge collection. I think this place is the most worth to see. And traveller should be careful with ricycle tour guide. They said 200peso for taking tour around, but it is 200peso for half hour :(. Be careful.

Beautiful Church, perfectly preserved. The Museum is magnificent. The cloisters and exhibits are beautiful, a true showcase of some of the best filipino religious art.

Out of all the great and beautiful churches in Manila, San Agustin has the most of the historical and chilling vibe to it. From the inside, it looks magnificent, but it's delivers even bigger impact on you, if you look around the church from outside. With all that Intramuros feeling to it, it is a great place to visit and... More

San Agustin Church is a beautiful example of medieval Spanish architecture during the period in which they occupied the Philippines. Really enjoyed the exhibits and courtyard, however certain areas were closed off (construction) and I felt a little more background information would have made the church that much more amazing. Small fee of 100 peso for adults, easily affordable.

Good historic church with museum and even though its crowed, the work and atmosphere is nice. It has a very engaged vibe to it.
