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.

San Agustin Church reviews
This church is such an amazing place! It imitates the European style, but it incorporates local materials and this is how you get the most amazing windows with Mother of pearl. more »
Beautiful historic church! No wonder it's the choice for many to get married there. It felt solemn enough and yet you also feel the vibrancy emanating from the church. more »
This place has amazingly beautiful architecture, Incredible. The ceiling is filled with 3D painting which looks and feels like 3D carvings, just astonishing. Every detail is particular and has some relevance. The Church accompanies a museum adjacent to it, which in it self acts as a significant monument to visit, explore the history and evolution of city's culture. Must Visit!!
Awesome place to tie the knot. They have their own coordinators on site. Only problem is crowd control which is a big one. All in all, i have enjoyed my moment in this breathtaking gem.
