San Agustin Church, Manila

4.4
#1 of 113 in Museums in Luzon
Part of a World Heritage Site with three other Baroque churches, San Agustin Church stands within Manila’s Intramuros, the second oldest church in the country. Completed in 1587, the church takes after some Augustinian-built churches in Mexico, testifying to the area's Spanish colonial heritage. Great trompe l’oeil murals on the ceiling, 14 side chapels, classical marble columns, an intricate rose window, carved doors, and a large garden make this place a must-visit and a great escape from the busy city. While on site, visit the museum adjacent to the church, which details the edifice’s rich history.

  • The church looks old and wonderful with western ancient design. It might look simple from outside but you must explore the nice architecture inside. You would observe 3D painting on the ceiling. During my visit, there was a wedding ceremony which make me know how famous this church is.
  • If you are a historian, better visit this place. You wont need a guide since the description are detailed here. Entrance fee is 200peso per person which is worth to get to know the 450 years old history. There are nearby attraction too.
