Quaipo church is packed with visitors, religious church goers, luck believers and vendors. Its much better to leave your vehicle parked somewhere safe than in Quiapo where its also hard to find a good parking space. Heavy traffic can be experienced most of the time (even when I'm only passing by Quiapo Church) due to undisciplined jeepney drivers picking up... More

The church keepers will tell you off if you are using your phone, but they don't mind those people chit-chattering inside the church. How unfair.

People go there often so you'll probably find the place hot and crowded. Nonetheless, me and my family go there even though it's crowded. Oh, and please keep an eye for your valuables. It is said that most snathers and thieves inhabit the area. Other than that, the church is huge.

It seems that there is continuously a mass in this church specially on Fridays. Vendors sell candles, herbs, flowers and religious articles outside this church. There is a parking lot which is usually full and it is not recommended to leave your car unattended. Nearby are all sorts of stores and the local market. The church is good for praying... More

Been wanting to visit the black Nazarene every time I go home,I have to this time since my husband has cancer. If you want to visit go midday for noon mass it's less people & traffic. And I advice you to just take Uber service it's the best thing

This is the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene or Saint John the Baptist Parish or Quiapo Church. Many people visit here especially in the afternoon, so if you want a quiet place to pray and meditate go here earlier than 5am. They give also sacrament of confirmation every week. Outside the church there are many vendors that sell- charms... More
