Manila Cathedral - Review

The Manila cathedral is one of the prettiest sights in Intramunos. Officially established as the ‘Church of Manila’ in 1571, the church was raised to cathedral in 1579. It is by far the oldest church in Manila. The stained glass windows and grand architectural design is reminiscent of the Spanish rule in Philippines that paved the way for Catholicism in the country.

Manila Cathedral, Manila Reviews

  • Beautiful architecture. When visiting the church, you can also roam around inside the walled city and you can see old Spanish houses built before war. Last time I heard, having your wedding done here cost a lot of money and you need to get an schedule at least 1 year before the wedding date. Lot of tourists visits the place.

  • Amazing cathedral. Anyone can visit the church for free. And participate the sermons. I am a Buddhist. Still I can see everything. Very nice people inside. Historical cathedral. So beautiful and must visit place if you are in Manila.

  • Beautiful restoration, more bright interiors, and, beautiful and melodious sound of the restored pipe organ. Has air-conditioning so as to allow the faithful to attend Holy Mass in a more pleasant manner.

  • Absolutely gorgeous design, deep historical ties, and intricate details and implements. This was a great stop on our Manila visit. I would warn of the tour guides, though loaded with tons of good, solid information, they had a pretty hard to believe story they were peddling. Great details about it's 8 restorations and historical relevance.

  • We visited Manila Cathedral Basilica of the Our Lady of Immaculate Conception last June 12, 2018. That time it was opened to public for an Open House. We have the privilege to see the crypt, sanctuary and pulpit, the choir loft, the roof deck. You can really see time and history built its rich stories.
