“A nice old church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2014 NEW

One of the usual sites to visit in Manila. Located in the Intramuros, next to other sites of interest. Well worth a brief visit.

“Really Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014

We signed-up through Manila Intramuros and had a very well informed tour guide. We loved everything about the Manila National Cathedral and it's history. The only drawback was there was no a/c!

“A must see for Church Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2014

This centuries old church has always functioned as "THE CHURCH" in the Philippines as it was the foremost church used by the elites of the Philippines. It has a great collection of spanish time pieces and icons. Worth a visit.

“Old spain building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

most of citizen of Philippines religion are roman catholic, if you go to Intramuros in near Manila Bay and Jose Rizal Park. you will find ambience of the old Spain city. inside the intramuros you will see the old cathedral with beautiful architecture.
Be careful with the bagger they will grab your hand and asked for money. you need to be firm with them.
