    A must visit central shrine of the Philippines' nation!

    A very important site, the Cathedral is a must visit place of contemplation and symbol of the nation's soul. The side Chapels are particularly fine as is the fretwork and window framing.

    Nice cathedral free entrance, great place for pictures

    We took the guided tour at Intramuros and this is one of the stops they make and the cathedral is free to enter, just don't use your flash for pictures.

Additional Information

Introduction

A true merging of traditional Catholic architecture, modern influences and Philippine culture, the Manila Cathedral in Manila, Philippines, offers a melting pot of faith and art. The current cathedral was erected in 1958 in the same spot as once stood the original church, decimated during the Philippine Battle of Liberation in 1945. The cathedral was created by world renown architect Fernando Ocampo, and, though it encapsulates many of the original's qualities, the church also displays many modern influences. Once inside, you discover that the heart of it is quite majestic in it's Philippine nature, making the Manila Cathedral a must see.
