“Full of precious artifacts, a real treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Felt great to have been here visiting again. From the grand staircase to the Oratorio, everything is valuable. Religious icons to paintings and sculptured objects. I was proud to show this off to my husband. He was very impressed too.

Come and visit to see. you will feel the same as we did.

“Visit if you can...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Walking through this place kind of reminds me of Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies, especially the corridors.

Churches in general are wasted on people who don't really believe, but for the history... it's was worth a look. 100 pesos for adults with concessions for students and senior citizens.

“the museum to see in Manila”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

This museum has a vast collection of paintings and the Church's vestment and icons. The oratorio is impressive as it has preserved the chairs and pipe organ.

“The modest exterior hides some surprises”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

After making your way through the entryway and foyer, you'll find several wings of artifacts and art hundreds of years old. The interior of the church itself is an eye-opener, with its high painted ceilings and ornate altar. Worth a visit, especially on a hot day when the interior stays tolerable despite the heat outside.
