NATIONAL SHRINE OF ST. JUDE THADDEUS (P. Laurel St, Manila). #VisitaIglesia2014 ● The present site of St. Jude Parish was donated by Archbishop Rufino J. Santos. The blessing and laying of the cornerstone of the church was held on September 28, 1958. The completed church was blessed on October 23, 1960. The weekly novena to St. Jude started in June 1959 and has been held every Thursday since then. The devotion spread over the years and has become very popular in Metro Manila. Devotees come from far and wide including students, board examination reviewees, office workers, parish and others with all kinds of requests and seemingly hopeless problems. Huge crowds overflow the church into the church grounds every Thursday. As a result of this, the church was conferred the title of Archdiocesan Shrine of St. Jude on June 21, 1994. (at National Shrine Of St Jude Thadeus)

Basilica Minore de San Sebastian (Plaza Del Carmen, Quiapo Manila). #VisitaIglesia2014 ● While the previous churches’ staples are arches and domes, San Sebastian Church’s Gothic architecture has its towering twin spires. It is also the only all-steel church in the Philippines, with materials imported from Belgium. Gustave Eiffel, the engineer of Paris’ Eiffel Tower, is said to have been involved in San Sebastian’s design and construction. The church has been declared as a national historical landmark and is on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The interiors are majestic with its pillars, crystal chandeliers, and stained glass windows. Technically over 300+ years old, though the original structure was made of wood and was burned during a 1651 Chinese revolt. The current structure is 120+ years old. (at San Sebastian Church Manila City)

Sto. Niño de Tondo Church (Lorenzo Chacon St, Tondo, Manila). #VisitaIglesia2014 ● Aside from its arches and columns, easily noticeable are Tondo Church’s twin domed bell towers on either side, and one small domed bell tower resting on the roof. Over 380 years old, but was re-built after 1863 because of earthquake damages. (at Sto. Niño De Tondo Parish Church)

Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz (Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz, Binondo, Manila). #VisitaIglesia2014 ● Aside from its arches and pillars, what is interesting about this granite church is its octagonal bell tower, which may reflect the Chinese culture of its parishioners, as 8 is considered an auspicious number. Recently, though, parts of the façade have been painted red, raising protests from those who would like to preserve the church’s beauty and history in its original state. Inside, be sure to look up to see the ceiling paintings depicting biblical scenes. Close to 420 years old, but was destroyed by British bombing in 1762 and re-constructed in 1852. This  west façade, walls, and bell tower survived World War II.

Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (Cabildo St, Intramuros, Manila). #VisitaIglesia2014 ● With an area of almost 3,000 square meters, Manila Cathedral looks massive and awe-inspiring. What stands out in its façade are its multi-layered arches. Also striking are the rose window on the middle top tower and the church’s domes. Its interiors are particularly grand because of its marble chapels, altar, and pulpit, among others. Technically 430+ years old, though the church has been destroyed several times, with its last re-construction in 1958. Its walls and façade survived World War II. (at Manila Cathedral - Intramuros, Manila)

SAN AGUSTIN CHURCH & MUSEUM (Gen. Luna St, Intramuros, Manila). #VisitaIglesia2014  ● The only church which is a UNESCO World Heritage site in Manila, San Agustin has not only striking Baroque architecture but also detailed trompe l’oeil murals on its walls and ceilings. Trompe l’oeil (literally “deceive the eye”) art is two-dimensional but gives the illusion of 3D. Its original structure, though later re-built, is 440+ years old. Its reconstruction as a stone church was finished 1607 and has survived earthquakes and World War II with only a damaged roof.  (at San Agustin Church And Museum - Intramuros Manila)
