San Agustin Church is situated a short distance away from the Cathedral and Santiago Fort. It is definitely worth a visit if you are inside Intramuros.

Although there was a wedding in progress there was still plenty to see here. While much of the building has been restored there are still many original sections to see. They also have a large collection of historic artifacts.

The St. Agustin Monastery has put on display many of its treasures from the last several hundred years. Sculptures, paintings, books, and various historical information are pleasantly arranged to delight the visitor for hours. Well worth the trip into Intramuros, Manila.

Try to come here after 3pm but before they close at 5pm. It's empty and full of mysteris. Try to find Japanese icon of Madinna with a child. Visit monastery cloister and library. Go 1st floor where the chorus are - really worth of long nonrush visiting!

Interesting facts about this church - there is a wedding every day and you have to book at least 2 years in advance to get a slot. Manila Cathedral is one of 7 churches in Intramuros but the only one that survived in world war 2. Interesting enough it has Greek, Spanish, Chinese influence in its architecture.

Very ornate interior with trompe l'oeil detail. Unless you are attending a service the only way to visit is by paying to visit the museum attached to it.

Stunning inside, worth a look. Check out the front door beautifully carved. Many restaurants close by with a view of the church.
