Binondo Church hotels
Binondo Church, situated in the Binondo District of Manila, is one of the oldest and most fascinating churches in the city. This ancient structure was first erected in the 16th century by Dominican priests who needed a place for their newly converted Chinese Christians to worship. The church was damaged and rebuilt several times including after a British bombardment in 1762 and after suffering heavily during World War II. The Philippines’ first saint, St. Lorenzo Ruiz, was trained in this church before being executed on a mission to Japan. This still-operating church holds masses in several languages.
- Attend a mass at the Binondo Church while in Manila and you can listen to this traditional service in several languages including Filipino, Chinese and English.
- Explore the ornate exterior of the church to see the intricate design details and sculptures that adorn the many niches built into the sides of the structure.
- Take a tour of the interior of the Binondo Church while in Manila to see the beautiful main altar of the Basilica, as well as the statue of Lorenzo Ruiz, the first patron saint of the Philippines.
Getting to the Binondo district can be difficult, as traffic is heavy, so if you want to attend a mass be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get there. The Manila MRT is the best way to get to Binondo Church, just get off at the Carriedo station that is centrally located in the district just a short walk away from the church. You can also use the preferred method of local transport, the jeepney, which is a cheap way to get around and see the city like a local.
