Manila Cathedral is a good place to visit for foreign and local tourists alike. Though the interiors are not as extravagant as that of the San Agustin museum, it is more tasteful in my opinion. It is also a place to meditate and pray.

The Manila Cathedral which was close for restoration now open for worship. Come pray and visit the old Manila. The Manila Cathedral is surrounded by history. After you wish and pray. Visit the Fort Bonifacio, and all the tourist attraction in Intramorus.

It also holds religious artworks and relics of the saints. Manila Cathedral is situated inside... More

I love the acoustics of the Church that even you are seated at the back of the church, you can hear clearly the voice of the priest or the lectors/choir. There are regular masses during weekdays and... More

So we tried twice to get into the church and both times we had services etc. so there were a ton of people, and it felt wrong to be all touristy during masses. However, it is still lovely, and a nice place to stop over to see the windows and statues. The alter piece is very pretty, and the church... More

It was very unforgettable, to me, our family, friends and relatives who witness my cousins special wedding day. The priest who presides the holy matrimony mass and his homily and as a message to the couple was indeed real lifes important thing to remember quoted from our Pope Francis! Will go back again here to attend the mass.

One of the foundation of Catholic Church. The whole vicinity was clean and and safe. A walking distance to Fort Santiago where you can go next after hearing a mass on a Sunday.
