This Cathedral is an old building, It is in Intermuros part of Manila. It was built by the Spanish, this area was the capital of Manila. The Church is nice and the area is well preserved. Make sure to see the fort nearby as well.

Spacious and feel solemn while inside. Though many people attended, we still feel the peaceful and solemnity of the mass. I like the bronze (not sure) statues and the mini museum inside.

My first-time guests were inspired when they entered the doors. They are not Catholic so its a big thing for them to see what it looks like inside a Church. I appreciate that the Cathedral keeps its doors open for curious onlookers.

Such a moving and beautiful cathedral. Remember to look at the main doors that depict the 8 times the cathedral has been destroyed and rebuilt!

While visiting Intramuros, you should for sure stop by and visit the cathedral. Do not expect too much as the original church was completly destroyed during WWII. Not much from the 1581 build church is left, so most has been rebuilt in the 60ties. There...More
