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.

I have been to San Agustin Church many times and I still could not get over how magnificent it is. It is a well-preserved church which will transport you back to a glorious, bygone era. The simplicity of the facade, the intricate doors and the beautiful interiors made it all the more grand. My friend and I once went inside... More

The church is newly renovated and you can see its original design with its fascinating archetectural design. Part of the building is still under renovation so it is not advisable to people who have physical dissability for example wheel chair users. There is no elevator so it will not be possible to go the next floor with out a lift.

It's a nice church close to the centre of town. There's a lot of history behind it and it's worth a visit when included with the other attractions in the area.

The church together with it's museum transfer you to the time when the walled city of Intramuros was the center of government, religion and trade. This is reflected on the church wherein influences from the spanish and chinese abounds. The famous gallon trade gave wealth to many filipinos with spanish blood and reflected with the opulence shown on the vestments... More

Intramuros is not a huge area so you will likely stop by this church while you wander the historic streets. This is a very popular stop as many tourists walk in and out of this beautiful church. Bless your travels by lighting a candle for a small donation.
