Rise above hassle they are just trying to earn a living. Ask Sto. Nino for what your heart really wants. We got the most precious gift of all.

What more is there to say? It's an old church (oldest in the country). Structure itself is just screaming to be photographed. Nice little courtyard garden with a fountain inside. Great for (Catholic) prayers.

I'm conflicted about the religious hawkers outside the church. Their alternative panhandling practices are amusing and only slightly inconvenient, but $2 for 10 recycled candles is a bit too rich for my blood.

Visit the Basilica on a sightseeing trip including magellan's Cross and Fort San Pedro.
This is a lovely old building- a bit drab on the outside- but inside are beautiful paintings on the ceiling. And it's huge! I felt a little uneasy being a tourist whilst so many people were in there to pray 9but it is a church after all!)and didn't spend as much time as i would've liked to look at the paintings, etc.

This old church is thronged with statuary and murals. We went on a Sunday morning when it was particularly busy and interesting.
