Interesting to see if you are Catholic. Oldest church in Manila. Has many statues of Jesus and Virgin Mary as well as some paintings.
This was a delightful church from the entrance. But, on a Saturday it was not possible to visit. There were back to back weddings all day long. The description looked wonderful and even from the entrance I could tell it would be well worth a visit when allowed. The interior was very inviting and the side chapels looked interesting.
Except for the malls and specialty stores, Manila does not have much to offer the tourist (I will refrain from going into my speech about "Philippine delicacies"). There is the Chines cemmetery, Intramuros and then . . . . San Augustin Church is interesting and, if you don't look closely rather nice. BUT on closer inspection the walls and columns... More
This church is fantastic, well worth the visit, a little unusual that they close the doors at midday, n take a lunch break, but we were staying very close so not a problem, The paintings on the church wall and ceilings are in a 3d style, amazing use of shadow and tone, needs to be seen to be believed, and...

This church is a must see when in Manila. There is a real sense of history that I did not feel anywhere else in the capital. After passing the obligatory neon Mary statue, the church has a very natural feel. Parts of it are like a museum, though I found much of what was on display irrelevant. After I visited,... More
a real nice church in the center of the old part of Manila. One can certainly appreciate the history and spanish influences in the country, not just in the church, but in the entire area around it as well
San Agustin Church's Baroque architecture is a sight to behold. It is located inside the historic walled city of Intramuros in Manila. The only one among the seven churches in the walled city to remain standing. It survived the bombings during the war. Its interiors are very impressive. I especially like the chandeliers plus the with trompe l'oeil mural on... More
I read a reviewer say skip it or don't go out of your way.. Wrong! Your in Manila ! Check it out! San Agustin was a featured on my tour - and soon we could see why. If you have been to a church in Germany,you will see the resemblance. Beautiful ornate and just a great example of religious architecture... More
A beautiful old church and worth a visit if you are in Intramuros. You pay a fee to enter some of the sights. Take smaller bank notes, they didn't have change and we waited until a few other tourists had paid so that they could give us change. Beautiful but sadly some damage to artifacts and paintings. Thankful this church... More
First impression I had of the church is impressive. It's big with high painter ceilings and shiny chandeliers. However on closer look the chandeliers are partially damaged. Further tour into the church revealed more artifacts and paintings which were obviously not taken care of, such as holes in the painting and paint so faded that you can hardly make out... More
