What people are saying:

Located in the center of Manila, we have attended the event, the organizer organized the tour, and invited cultural experts to give a professional explanation, very beneficial. Romanesque architecture. It is a Catholic Church, with a gray body, a very solemn, quaint, Catholic archbishop of Manila, the original church built in 1581, was constantly damaged and rebuilt. Stone and rose-shaped carved windows and ancient. Stained glass windows are colorful against the sun. The interior is completely decorated with stone and is especially heavy. The rows of seats are mottled and dotted, showing the history of the vicissitudes. It was just in time for mass. The organ bulges, adding to the sense of sacredness.

Additional Information

Introduction

A true merging of traditional Catholic architecture, modern influences and Philippine culture, the Manila Cathedral in Manila, Philippines, offers a melting pot of faith and art. The current cathedral was erected in 1958 in the same spot as once stood the original church, decimated during the Philippine Battle of Liberation in 1945. The cathedral was created by world renown architect Fernando Ocampo, and, though it encapsulates many of the original's qualities, the church also displays many modern influences. Once inside, you discover that the heart of it is quite majestic in it's Philippine nature, making the Manila Cathedral a must see.
