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

  • They have a 730am mass; the morning service is nice, and you will have time afterwards to stroll along the Plaza Roma fronting the church, as it wont be too hot by this time. Also take time to view the historical relics on display on both sides of the church. They relay an interesting history of the manila cathedral. At the church entrance, they have a table with religious items like rosaries, medallions and other souvenir items for sale. There are also a handful of vendors outside, but only a few of them as not to be bothersome.

  • One of the most oldest and historical church in Metro Manila. Both locals and foreigners always want to take a picture of this magnificent structure. It is also near Intramuros where you can walk and learn more about the history of the Philippines way back the Spanish era. We also attended our classmates' wedding here few years ago and it is really beautiful!

  • 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.

  • Such beauty with so much history. Visiting the cathedral at night is also a good idea because the place is well lit to make it more picturesque.

  • It is gothic and huge church inside Intramuros. Inside, they have a historical showroom when and how this church was built. It feels like you go back in time when you are in this place. The architectural surroundings will definitely make you appreciate what it was before.
