It is on a UNESCO's list of world heritage Spanish baroque churches of the Philippines, it is the oldest church in the country, the only large structure to have survived the orgy of destruction at the end of the second world war when most of colonial Manila was bombarded, and it is just stunning. It does not have a golden... More

There is a lot to see. If you like paintings, architecture, sculpting and are curious about history and religion, you really want to check this one.

The minimal entry fee is worth every peso - must see if you're visiting the church itself. Allow at least 1 hour.

This is a unique museum that houses a different collection - one that shows you more of the history of Intramuros. Unique and worth the visit

They charged 100 pesos for the entry and surprisingly they do have many items on display. Unfortunately, very few items have clear description and few of the oldest paintings clearly need lot more care. I noticed that there is lot of renovation works going on especially in the second floor which is a good thing. Probably in an year's time,... More

The church is spectacular but the museum and grounds are rather mundane unless you have a special interest in the history.

It is at the moment being catalogued and the artefacts displayed but with few descriptive information to go with them. The clergy garments and religious artefacts are of interest for their richness. The museum does close for lunch which... More

Museum is in a state of significant renovations but about 70-80% complete. Nothing of particular note but a decent distraction for 30-45 minute visit while touring the historic quarter.
