“historic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

very crowded and can't concentrate on the mass and in worshipping God due to the busy environment. the iconic statue of the black nazarene makes this a must visit church.

“Historic. Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This Church is worth visiting if you are with a group of locals. If you are a foreigner do not be tempted to walk through markets near by...it's not safe for you.

“Shrine of the Black Nazarene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This Catholic church is very popular, especially among Filipinos who are devotees of the Black Nazarene. I believe they have 9 masses daily and more on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

It is always crowded any time of the day, any day of the year. Friday is always "Quiapo Church day" so expect a lot of traffic along the area on Fridays.

“Vibrant Place when Markets are on!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We went to visit this church when the Quiapo Markets were in full swing. Wow! The atmosphere was vibrant with colors, sounds and smells, all good! The church by contrast was very peaceful. The church is beautiful and is home of the Black Nazarene, which is unique. You must see the church and all the more exciting if you go when the markets are on!

“Nice but not the most impressive in Manila”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

The area outside the church bustles with street vendors selling cheap junk, which sort of cheapens the church. As Jesus said, "The Father's home is not a marketplace."
