“Surroundings is getting a little too crowded”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

I've visited Binondo Church several times, and each time I get more and more disappointed. It's nice to have a church in the middle of a chaotic district, but sometimes the noise is just too loud that you cannot hear anything anymore. Still, the place remains solemn, and is a testament to the mix of Chinese culture and Roman Catholicism in the Philippines.

“time travel This is what we like best in Binondo, the happy blending of East and West.”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Binondo Church where it is enshrined to this day on a glass-covered niche near the side entrance of the church. Another shrine located in San Nicholas district was built on the site of the old well where the miraculous image of Christ was found.

“Chinoy Heritage”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

A visit to Binondo is not complete without a stopover to Binondo Church. This is the home of our 1st Filipino Saint San Lorenzo Ruiz.

“Landmark”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Nice to visit and see the center of worship in the olden days of Manila. Always crowded and noisy but the design and ambience of the place reminds you of how rich this district is in the old days.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We took a calesa (horse-drawn carriage) from Intramuros to Binondo and stopped at this church. Very beautiful and worth a visit.
