It was a perfect wedding for us when we got married at San Agustin Church. The Elegance inside the church as well as its history was beyond compare!

San Agustin Church is an UNESCO Heritage Church. The church miraculously survived -- actually the only structure that remained standing after the American bombers flatten the entire historic Walled City of Intramuros to the ground during the World War II's liberation of Manila. There are much older churches inside Intramuros -- more than a dozen actually -- and in Cebu... More

This one of the Intramuros I visited. What a beautiful church that's been rebuilt at least three time. A Immaculate conception Parish church. (Roman Catholic) The structure of the church is beautiful with grand pipe organ, Rosettes & sunken panels, choir seats carved in molave and a beautiful 17th century huge chandeliers. This is a must to see and visit.

I went here in passing when we were in Chinatown..decided to do a sidetrip of Intramuros and this is one of our pit stops. Church interior is amazing. When we went there, there was a mass and there were people ( church staff probably) standing at the church door to usher people in, handing out donation envelopes.

The interior of this church is really stunning. Very ornate, like a Russian palace! The outside is nice but fairly unassuming & the museum attached is worth a visit too. It's peaceful inside & you're welcome to look around & take photo's as long as you're respectful of anyone inside as it is still a working church. Definitely worth stopping... More

I know there are churches in the Philippines that I haven't seen, but of the ones I visited in Manila, this is by far the nicest. The museum is also well worth the cost of entry.

A most beautiful Church. A must see for all tourists. Take the time to look at the many sanctuaries within the Church. Sit on a pew and contemplate your past life. Pray to your God whoever it might be Do not miss having a ride on the horse drawn buggys outside the Church Say NO to the many pedlars that... More

This is where I got married. My father bright me here when I was around 8 to hear Sunday Mass and everything that surrounds the place are old. It is near Manila Cathedral and the famous Fort Santiago. It is like walking in history.

The most beautiful Catholic Church interior you'll find in the Philippines. The church is very old yet and the intricate decorations inside makes you wonder about the inspiration and the talents of the artisans who crafted them.

If you think of visiting a place to have a feel of the historical side of the Cathiolic Church in the Philippines, this is the place to go. Just don't get carried away in focusing on taking good photos. Try to really appreciate your visit by praying at the venerable church.
