What travelers say:

The St. Augustine Cathedral in Manila, Philippines, consists of two parts: chapel and monastery. The Baroque chapel is the architectural essence of the entire St. Augustine, while the monastery is partly a museum, with a large collection of precious items such as French clothes, the Holy Grail of gold, silver crosses, ivory statues, silk mantles embroidered with gold threads and oil paintings. The focus of this article is on the organ inside the church, which is rare to see. As a world historical and cultural heritage, St. Augustine's Cathedral has also experienced the destruction of war, and many precious collections have been lost in successive wars. After World War II, St. Augustine was rebuilt. The church and the First Abbey restored the appearance of the year, and in 1965, to commemorate 400 years of Catholic transmission in the Philippines, St. Augustine exhibited photographs of hundreds of churches built across the country between the 16th and 19th centuries, which spawned the idea of creating a museum. Since then, St. Augustine has continuously collected various precious cultural relics lost in the wars and displayed in the monastery for public viewing. Today, St. Augustine is not only a church, a monastery, but also a museum that collects many Filipino and Spanish art treasures. It is an important place to display the historical and cultural treasures of the Philippines and is worth visiting. I feel that it is not enough to spend a whole day.
