    This church is on the world heritage list because of its unique architectural style, a reinterpretation of European Baroque by Chinese and Philippine craftsmen...

    The first time I wandered through Intramuros I stopped by at this church and there was a wedding being held there. I had to poke my nose in for a little while.

    Culprit caught!

    If too many Kodak moments present themselves to you and your camera, chances are there's a Syllybabe behind all those moments!

    Getting hitched

    San Agustin Church is a favorite for couples getting married. And why not? It is one of the grandest churches in Manila.

    Saints

    Then, this museum is the perfect place to find them. In paintings, statues, murals - and all of them old.

    Meditation in the Courtyard

    Be ready for that Kodak moment, when a shy seminarian might present a contemplative pose - don't even think! just click away!

    Tour the San Agustin Museum

    One of the separate altars inside the museum

    Just $1 will get you inside the museum of San Agustin Church. Bring a camera - for those kodak moments. Mostly, old paintings and carved murals.

    Facade

    San Agustin inside the walls of Intramuros is the oldest church in the Philippines. Built in the 1600s, it has survived earthquakes, wars, and typhoons - with some renovation works of course.

    Sala de la Capitulacion

    sign outside the sala

    We weren't allowed to take photos inside the Sala de la Capitulacion. This is where the surrender of Manila to the Americans was drafted in 1898 by then Governor General Fermin Jaudenes.

    Father Blanco's Garden

    Bronze Statue of Fr. Blanco by Amado Castrillo

    Father Manuel Blanco published a book called "Flora de Filipinas" in 1883. The garden was destroyed in 1945 and restored in 1991.
    The garden is perfect for quiet, contemplative moments.
