This cathedral has a very interesting life. It was built and destroyed and burnt and renewed after the Filipino's turbulent history.The information is handed in the entrance and clear explanation is given in each part of the cathedral.A must-see destination for travellers!
If Intramuros is Manila's most important attraction, then Manila Cathedral is the most worthwhile place to visit in Intramuros. The cathedral with a totally European architectural style has a very beautiful appearance and occasional carriages passing through the doorway. The magnificent feeling is self-evident. Stepping into it, a feeling of the Holy Spirit immediately arrives, holy and beautiful, pious people are bowing their heads to meditate, and stained glass makes the sunshine sprinkled in more colorful. After taking pictures and finding a row of vacancies, just like the followers, sitting for a while, the mood will gradually quiet down with the Manila Church, which was first built in the Philippines during Spanish rule in 1581. In the years that followed, churches were constantly destroyed and rebuilt by typhoons, earthquakes, and the flames of war. The church is now the sixth time that it has been built. It was designed by architects Fernando Ocampo and Archbishop Rufino J Santos in the second half of the 1950s, drawing on the stone carvings and rose-shaped windows of the old church.
I made sure to take pics of the coats of arms of the previous and current cardinal archbishops.
Manila retains many ancient buildings. The mossy churches are ancient in appearance, unique in style, superb in architectural level, and reflect with modern architecture, forming a mixture of East and West, simplicity and prosperity, ancient and modern. The Philippines is the only Christian country in the East, with Christians accounting for more than 90 [%] of the country's population, 85 [%] of which are Catholic. There are many churches in Manila. Each church has its own characteristics of architectural age, which is the silent witness of Manila's history. The city's famous St. Augustine Church, built in 1599, is the oldest Spanish-style Catholic Church in the Philippines and one of the oldest stone buildings in the Philippines. Manila Cathedral is the most important Roman-style Catholic Church in the Philippines. It is located on the west side of Rilil Park. It was built for Notre Dame Maria. It contains Italian, German and Spanish treasures. A large number of bronze products, mosaic crafts and sculptures contributed by well-known artists from Ya and other countries.
Not bad. Colonized by Spain, the buildings left behind are also very distinctive. Take a carriage around the Kingdom of Spain. Negotiate with Xiao Hei. Ha ha.... They wrote 500p for one person, and I talked about 400p for two people. So this still depends on their own free play. Actually, the public security is not bad. As long as you don't show off your wealth, you won't encounter robbery. I've been living there for a year and I feel that the people there are still good. If you play, you should go to the sea. The Philippine Sea is really good.
Manila Cathedral is the main building of Manila Catholic Archdiocese. The original cathedral was built in 1581. In the following years, the cathedral was constantly destroyed and rebuilt by typhoons, earthquakes and the flames of war. A lot of little black people ride bicycles around to attract business, that is to take you around this scenic spot. This area is quite large. If you walk by yourself, it will take several hours. I don't have much interest in the church, so I refused. But he never gave up behind him, so we went straight to the SMS shopping mall after strolling through two churches!! There are some religious activities in Manila Cathedral, such as Mass, Announcement, Baptism and so on. Wedding services are also provided.
Well it's a church, and a very active one with well attended masses every day. It is nothing special however - it is very modern, and quite rightly it is primarily aimed at worshippers rather than tourists. In my view, it is worth popping in if you are passing but I wouldn't
Manila Cathedral is a Catholic church. It was built in the middle of the 16th century. It has been more than 400 years now. After many baptisms of war and six rebuildings, it has become what it is now. On Sunday morning, there were many worshippers. The church building is magnificent and magnificent. It's a must-see place in Manila.
