This is one of my favorite place to visit when in Manila. This is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines and still to date one of the most popular. Nice architecture. A very busy church because this is very popular for weddings. It takes more than a year to reserve a wedding date here. When inside, I find... More

The church was pretty but the convent museum was excellent. It was recently redone and has a significant amount of artifacts and great history of the Augustinian order.

Plan on only spending a couple hours in Intramuros. It will not take any longer as the Manila Cathedral is just down the street.

The sentimental person that I am, I enjoy visiting historical sites. It opens my eyes to the past, and allows me to appreciate the great story leading up to our present. This church is a testament to our rich art and deep Catholic faith. It is a must-see place for art lovers, history students, and the faithful. Visitors must be... More

A lovely old church in Intramuros with an interesting history. There was a mass going on when we arrived, so we went to the museum which is attached to the church. It was well laid out and told about the early Spanish missionaries who came from Mexico, all the way through to the destruction of WW2 in 1945. The gardens... More

As a Spanish colony for 400 years, the Philippines was molded in Spanish culture, cuisine and cathedrals that have successfully been made part of her people's lives. The San Agustin Church in the walled city of Intramuros in Manila, is one church that has withstood wars, earthquakes and floods, through the centuries. Its facade and altar boast of an impressive...

The history of this little church is more interesting than the Manila Cathedral. The ceiling artwork is no Sistine Chapel, but if you sit and just take it in....I think this is a must on a visit to Intramuros.
