Create an itinerary including San Agustin Church
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. Make San Agustin Church a centerpiece of your Manila vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Manila online road trip planner.

  • This church is such an amazing place! It imitates the European style, but it incorporates local materials and this is how you get the most amazing windows with Mother of pearl.

  • Love the atmosphere. This place is itself a story and you get more tempted to know by just viewing the amazing architecture of old times. The construction is strong and untouched. It's just like a beautiful Maze , you just wanna get lost in it. The cafe and surrounding are amazing to get into the groove and make the best memories out of it
  • San Agustin Church is one of the four Baroque churches in the Philippines constructed during the Spanish-colonial period and designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The architectural design and details are intricate and beautiful. If you want to experience and feel the medieval churches in Europe, come visit the San Agustin Church. The interior is highlighted by the symmetry and splendor accented with 3D carvings, a baroque pulpit with the native pineapple as a motif, a grand pipe organ, and a set of 16 beautiful chandeliers from Paris. You should visit the church to appreciate it.
