When the Franciscans' mother church in Intramuros was destroyed in the closing days of World War II, they built their new Santuario (sanctuary) de San Antonio and installed a statue of Saint Anthony that had survived the bombing of their old beloved church. Many of Manila's wealthy families reside in nearby Forbes Park and Dasmarinas Village, so this church is where most of their christenings, weddings and funerals take place.

Cute church

A cute little church open 24hours a day. As most of old buildings very European influenced during its construction.

I enjoy my weekend mass here, air conditioned for anticipated mass and Sunday masses, very comfortable, well lit and beautiful church. There is a choir that sing beautifully but only at certain times.

Even after a very late dinner, I can still go because it's open 24 hours. Every whose who in Manila choose this as their wedding church but the real magic for me is the adoration chapel.

A lovely old church with a Portuguese influence. Adored by the locals and in a good area of Manila. Across the road from a small shopping plaza.

Santuario de San Antonio is located very near the busy business district of Makati and Bonifacio Global City. It is also located in the most posh residential area in the country. If you want a bit of old architecture, church architecture and are in the Makati area, visit this church to see the grand beautiful altar. A favorite also for... More

This church is not only beautiful, but is inbetween Global City (Fort Bonaficio) and makati on McKinley road. I attended Mass there about 4 times in my stays in the Phil. Getting a cab after Mass is interesting, but the celebration is beautiful, the church is what you would expect in the Phil, and the location is great.

It is located nearby one of the most exclusive villages in Makati City. This place often time wedding ceremonies are held. And it is also short distance from the Central Business District of Makati and booming upscale of Bonifacio Global City.

Relax in beautiful surroundings and you can forget you are in the heart of the city. Reasonable prices, great facilities - imagine a beer in a night garden hot tub. Fabulous!

That might seem a strange title, but that is a definite plus in humid weather. This is a well established parish in the tonier part of the city, and I'm happy that it's been well maintained all these decades after. I went two weekends in a row while on a visit to Manila. On the first , the A/C was... More
