Malate Church, Manila Reviews

  • Peaceful on weekdays. Great for contemplation

  • Originally built by Spanish Augustinian missionaries in 1588, the baroque Nuestra Señora de Remedios (Our Lady of Remedies), or popularly known as Malate Church, has gone through several restorations after surviving numerous earthquakes, countless typhoons and four wars, even used by British forces as a base to launch their attacks on the Spanish fort of Intramuros during their brief capture of Manila in 1762. The original statue of the Virgin Mary brought from Spain in 1624 still presides over the congregation from the altar today. More than 400 years since its erection on the bank of Manila Bay, Mass can still be heard every Sunday morning every hour on the hour from 6:00 on, one of the few places on the planet where you can hear an Irish priest deliver an entire Mass in Tagalog with an Irish accent - including the homily! The Malate Church choir is comprised of young elementary and high school children, directed by an organist playing a vintage Yamaha two-tiered electric keyboard with push-button programmed drums, and bass played with the feet, wildly popular in the 1970’s, the kind my dad used to play Bach and Mozart pieces on in our living room and on which I took lessons when I was 11 years old. Playing a wide range of worship songs in three different languages (English, Tagalog and Latin), some written by such Pinoy pop luminaries as Ryan Cayabyab, the melodies carried by children’s voices bounce beautifully against the high domed ceiling of Malate Church, wafting endlessly out the open stained glass windows, through the surrounding trees and weaving into the incessant noise of Manila traffic...

  • Beautiful place with historical look inside out

  • A small church showing history by its old outside features. Nice to visit.

  • Our Lady of Remedies parish is one of the oldest church in Manila and very reminiscent of what the community needed that time
