When the Franciscans' mother church in Intramuros was destroyed in the...

When the Franciscans' mother church in Intramuros was destroyed in the closing days of World War II, they built their new Santuario (sanctuary) de San Antonio and installed a statue of Saint Anthony that had survived the bombing of their old beloved church. Many of Manila's wealthy families reside in nearby Forbes Park and Dasmarinas Village, so this church is where most of their christenings, weddings and funerals take place.

Santuario de San Antonio is located very near the busy business district of Makati and Bonifacio Global City. It is also located in the most posh residential area in the country. If you want a bit of old architecture, church architecture and are in the Makati area, visit this church to see the grand beautiful altar. A favorite also for... More

This church is not only beautiful, but is inbetween Global City (Fort Bonaficio) and makati on McKinley road. I attended Mass there about 4 times in my stays in the Phil. Getting a cab after Mass is interesting, but the celebration is beautiful, the church is what you would expect in the Phil, and the location is great.

It is located nearby one of the most exclusive villages in Makati City. This place often time wedding ceremonies are held. And it is also short distance from the Central Business District of Makati and booming upscale of Bonifacio Global City.

Relax in beautiful surroundings and you can forget you are in the heart of the city. Reasonable prices, great facilities - imagine a beer in a night garden hot tub. Fabulous!

That might seem a strange title, but that is a definite plus in humid weather. This is a well established parish in the tonier part of the city, and I'm happy that it's been well maintained all these decades after. I went two weekends in a row while on a visit to Manila. On the first , the A/C was... More

Forbes Park, is located smack in  Manila's central business, commerce, and financial district of Makati. It   is the toniest of enclaves in the Philippines, where the rich and famous have palatial homes and  embassies and diplomatic chanceries are located.  But, like any well planned community developed by the Ayala family, this village  has a parish church, in honor of...

Being situated in the city's richest residential neighborhood has its perks, the church is fully air-conditioned during masses, the place is well maintained. Tourists will find the gold ornate altar interesting.

Location is really posh, with forbes park and dasmarinas village beside it. This small but picturesque church is perfect for a wedding venue. I attended one last year and was in awe at the beauty when this small church is transformed in to a wedding place. The place itself is really beautiful, small but clean. It just the perfect size...

It is a nice church with air-conditioning inside and one of the few places with almost 100% English language mass. Schedules available on the internet. As it is next to the posh villages of Forbes and Dasmarinas, frequented by the rish in Metro Manila. Good to go to church, but not really a tourist site for people from abroad unless... More
