Part of a World Heritage Site with three other Baroque churches, San Agustin Church stands within Manila’s Intramuros, the second oldest church in the country. Completed in 1587, the church takes after some Augustinian-built churches in Mexico, testifying to the area's Spanish colonial heritage. Great trompe l’oeil murals on the ceiling, 14 side chapels, classical marble columns, an intricate rose window, carved doors, and a large garden make this place a must-visit and a great escape from the busy city. While on site, visit the museum adjacent to the church, which details the edifice’s rich history.

What a fantastic treasure tucked away in the hustle and bustle of the Intramuros. Original art, beautiful gardens, a 400+ year old door, and an amazing 3D painted ceiling. Get there early to avoid crowds and get spectacular photos without other people ruining the shot. Clean bathrooms. Friendly staff. Spent 2 hours, but easily could have spent more. Definitely want to go back.
Very accommodating church staff and very friendly. church is amazing. My wedding was memorable. U will feel loved by god. And amazed.
