About San Sebastian Church

 A grand Cathedral devoted to San Sebastian located in Manila was build in 1921 by a rich and religious patron who donated both the land and money. However, thirty years later the church was destroyed by fire during a Chinese uprising. It was rebuild but destroyed by an earthquake or fire again and a few times after that. In the end in 1891 after loosing four churches over 250 years the church leaders decided to put an end to the destruction and they developed a Cathedral entirely out of pre-fab steel which is the first and only building to be constructed with this material in Asia to this day. More than a century later and the church hasn't experience not even a dent to its structure. The beauty of this church comes alive from its faulted ceilings, glimmering stained-glass and Gothic spires which inspire wedding planners to bring their clients towards to this gorgeous and strong church.

    Over 300 years of history, the Catholic Church of Saint Sabas was built in the Spanish colonial era. The architectural style of ancient Europe is a very sacred Catholic Church. The ceiling in the church and the decorations and sculptures on the walls are exquisite works.

    St. Basidion is a Catholic church. It was built in 1981. It has arched ceilings and jewel-like stained glass windows. It is the only all-steel Church in Asia. The Gothic style of architecture has also increased a lot.

    The church looks especially beautiful against the blue sky. At night, the church lights up more beautifully. The children are very happy to play in the square.
