The monastery allowed us to understand how life must have looked like during the early Spanish occupation of Manila. We especially liked the court garden of the monastery

The original building from the 1500's burnt down twice but the current church is now an imposing limestone building. Built to bring the Catholic religion to the indigenous animist/muslim population.
