Founded in 1571, St. Augustine Church is an ancient stone church in the Philippines and is listed as a World Heritage Site as a representative of the Baroque Church. The church is located in the city of the city and is a symbol of the history of the Philippines. The early church was built with bamboo, coconut leaves and mud, and was destroyed by fire. It was rebuilt in 1599 and changed into stone building. The reliefs in the church are meticulously realistic, with precious religious paintings; the stained glass refracts the sun and sets off the nobleness of the church. The choir on the top of the church overlooks the church.

This beautiful historical church is located inside the famous city wall of Intramuros in Manila, the Philippines. It’s almost a half-century old building which now is used as a church and also a museum, making it also the oldest church in the whole Philippines. This place is also listed on the UNESCO world heritage site. I would recommend to book your tickets in advance as the place can be quite crowded during certain season. I was so lucky it was so empty at the time I visited! It’s pretty easy to access this place if you come from the city center, you can either take public transport like buses or metro, or just hire the Grab taxi which is very affordable too!
