Magnificent building very old but still in use was spared the American bombing in the second world war as they painted a red cross on the roof to make it look like a Hospital.

We've been in Manila several times and this was a church I remember to have been able to go in once. But that was it. These days it's closed all the time. The only access to the interior is by going through the Museum beside it where it has an entrance to the church. Sadly there's a fee for the... More

Good place, you can see people getting married there. It´s popular. I didn´t like the restriction for tourists. Of course, some times tourists want to pray as well.

The entry fee (200php) is quite steep, but when you get in, you'll understand why. They have very well maintained exhibitions on various subjects of the history (culture, business, establishmend, etc.)

Good but not enough parking. Entrance ticket to get in. Wonderful halls with many statues and big boat in the centre. Many bottles and bags with ashes of known people in a room.

The museum is a former convent of Domics and have a lot history to provide a nice back ground of Filipinas during the colony period of Spanish. Also wall the intramuros city is really... More

What I learned from the Intramuros Ghost Walk: The only surviving building after the World War is no less than a church. San Agustin Church, the oldest church in Manila became a concentration camp of the Japanese for prisoners and hostages. Rumor has it that it was spared from the bombings when an influential devotee pleaded to the Americans to... More

This church is no doubt an important landmark of Intramuros. San Agustin Church was one of four Philippine churches constructed during the Spanish colonial period to be designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It's architecture is very impressive and I am in awe by the paintings in this very structure. This church is definitely worth a visit.
