This is not a mere Church but a museum. I visited there and had a quick look. (Unfortunately I had no enough time) Surprised to see there are so many articles on exhibition, including non-religious pieces, which shows long history of relationship between Philippines and China/Europe/etc. Chapel is of course wonderful. A wedding ceremony was just beginning. I wished couple's... More

This and all the churches and shrines I visited during my 15 day holiday, first time in Philippines, simply blew me away with the incredible quality of construction so long ago, that has stood the test of time. Beautiful interior with altar and stained glass windows and figures/sacred objects. You can do all these types of visits on your own... More

This is a great building. I loved walking through the castle-like structure as I explored the different rooms and sacred objects. I am from California and I know a lot about Spanish colonial history and seeing it in the Philippines was really interesting. I loved the enormous sizer of the structure; going up the ramparts and stairwells was sort of... More

Has a lot of interesting history of the Augustinian monks, both in and out of the Philippines. Very quiet and peaceful, as most tourists seem to by-pass this place.
