A well worthy effort to pass through when near Manila. The architectural design was well preseved and you would be mermerized with its historical significance during the Spanish era. The area though is a bit challenge as it is located in the heart of the town. But you can ask around for directions as most of the people are freindly... More

We visited this church as part of our pilgrimage tour of Bulacan and Manila. It is a museum piece which must be preserved as it played important roles in the history of The Philippines' politic and that of the Catholic Church.

It was refuge to wounded soldiers & sanctuary to victims of war. It stood as a fortress that witnessed many battles, saw heroes & foes, allies & conquistadores. The church stood... More

An historic site for pilgrimage. The church's detail has been beautifully preserved, the intricately carved doors, the old façade, and the beautiful bright interior. The deep red backdrop of the altar makes an interesting accent of modern contrast. It also has two museums which we were not able to visit. Plenty of parking for a small fee. A must -visit.

We all know that this church owns a piece of history as one of the oldest churches in the Philippines and the birthplace of the Constitution. The place speaks to this day to you of its cultural significance. The past is well preserved. One finds it in the ancestral design and architecture the Barasoain church is known for. Whenever I...

The structure itself is magnificent. What impressed me are the door carvings. I don't know why is there a parking fee?

This circa 1630 church is a must visit for history buffs, being the site of the First Philippine Republic (23 January 1899). This is also where the First Philippine Congress was convened (15 September 1898) and where the Malolos Constitution was drafted. The convent area houses 2 museums -- the Ecclesiastical Museum and the Light and Sound Museum. Entrance is... More

We brought my mother-in-law for 3 reasons: to visit the historical place, to pray and to pay homage to the relic of Saint Pope John Paul II
