Nice church. Not particularly grand or opulent. But nice and well maintained. Orderly. Cool doors. A cool alter.

If you are ever in Intramuros, make sure you make a quick stop and visit the Manila Cathedral. The building is humongous and has a very impressive architecture too. You can see lots of faithful Filipinos and foreigners alike, praying fervently in this cathedral. It...More

Went to Manila Cathedral Church last April 2017. It was such a very memorable visit! I felt real joy and peace while inside the church! There's a magical feeling! One of the best, if not the best in the Philippines!

Went there during mass time in early afternoon. The church was full and some people were standing. Felt strong and positive vibes inside. I was impressed how people of Philippines are very religious. Would visit this church again on my next travels to Philippines.

This place is worth visiting. You can feel the air of colonial Manila. Back in time where Manila was under the Spanish Rule. This is a must visit if you go to Intramuros. Overall this majestic structure is a sight to behold.

The first of many churches visited in the Philippines. A large and impressive structure. You can walk about freely if no weddings or mass is going on.

Manila Cathedral is located in Intramuros, a touristic area of Manila. Like many other constructions of this area, this Cathedral lets us recall old Spanish time. But the actual cathedral is a reconstruction after the Second World War. The inside is worth visiting.

I am sure. But I didn't have a guided tour to relay any. But based on its amazing history, I am sure there are a few urban legends.
