well this is one of the places i actually enjoy in Manila, the building itself is beautiful and its relaxing garden surrounding, you just can't miss this place. It is easily accesable inside the intramuros and doesn't require much effort to actually notice the place.

They Church has ruined this nice place by constantly hanging large murals advertising political positions, such as voting against the reproductive healt act, or "voting catholic", the latest gimmik concocted by the Arroyo government to convince people to vote for their corrupted party

As a wedding photographer, this church is one of my least favorite. First, they are too strict in their rules. Why? because when you violate one rule you need to pay a fine. Everything is money. Also, when the bride enters the church, there is a big pillar in between that makes the entrance so anti-climatic.

The church itself is nice, but they've placed so many barricades and signages around that makes it too commercial.

Can't find any information if this will be opened before I arrived, I was hoping it would be ready since its been closed from
Feb 2012 and was slated to be ready within a year. Very sad to miss this out as I won't know when I will be back again

The Philippines has many museums and cathedrals, most people think of Europe when it comes to those topics. Think again! The many cathedrals, and museums would rival Europe any day! With better weather, and Palm trees!
