San Agustin Church

The San Agustin Church is located in the walled city of Intramuros in Manila, Philippines and is the country’s oldest standing church. The church was originally built by Spanish colonists in 1571 but a fire ravaged the first structure, forcing it to be rebuilt. After a second fire claimed the wooden replacement the third instalment of the San Agustin Church was built from stone and completed in 1607. Since then the lavishly decorated interior has been the location of many important festivals and historic events, including the Surrender of Manila to America after the Spanish-American War.

  • Marvel at the magnificent trompe l'oeil mural that lines the walls and ceilings of San Agustin Church, a must-see for visitors to Manila who enjoy 19th century art.
  • Climb into the choir loft and admire the beautiful, ornate, hand-carved seats that still remain from the 17th century.
  • Check out the main altar, where you will find a communal vault containing the remains of some of Manila’s most famous people, including Spanish conquistadors Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Martin de Goiti.

The walled city of Intramuros is easy to navigate on foot, as most of the attractions, including the San Agustin Church are located on or near General Luna Street. Getting to Intramuros from the city centre is easiest by cab, but beware of the time of day, as Manila has treacherous rush hour traffic that could make this short trip into an epic journey. The Central Terminal is the closest station for the train, but is a fairly long walk from San Agustin Church, so catch a taxi to cut down the time.
