St. Augustine's Church is characterised by reliefs on stones, which are meticulous and realistic. When we arrived in the square in the morning, there were many Filipino students, teams and some foreigners gathered at the door to take pictures. They were very happy adoptive children. At that time, few people who saw them did not visit the square. Only when they came back, they found that there were other holes in the square. They regretted that they had some chance to go in and have a look!! There are paintings on the ceiling and walls inside the church, with Augustine and Jesus in the middle. The ashes of prominent Philippine officials of all ages are buried in churches, with the year of the deceased carved on the floor. The most distinctive tropical feature is the long exposure of branch lamps and bright sunlight to stained glass.
The oldest stone church in the Philippines. The construction plan was approved in 1586. Construction began in 1587 and was completed in 1607 under the supervision of Augustine's father and Francisco Bastos. Fonso Perez, San Diego de Avila and his brother Aron went to Perea. Its architecture designer, Juan Masias-TECT, was Juan Masias. It has withstood many earthquakes since 1645 and survived the British invasion in 1762. In 1898, the American-Spanish War and Japan's invasion of China were also spared. 1942: The church choir has 68 carved Murafi seats with narrative inlays. Art LEC terns and parchment cantorals in the 17th and 18th centuries. During 1762, Britain occupied Manila and desecrated churches and graves. The ashes of the early Spanish conquerors, Riyashibi, El Salvador, lavezares, wish Pedro Banzuniga and others rest at the eastern end of the church. In 1898, the United States occupied Manila and made provisions for churches. The first Philippine plenary meeting was held here in 1952. In 1993, the Church of St. Augustine was chosen as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Not bad. Colonized by Spain, the buildings left behind are also very distinctive. Take a carriage around the Kingdom of Spain. Negotiate with Xiao Hei. Ha ha.... They wrote 500p for one person, and I talked about 400p for two people. So this still depends on their own free play. Actually, the public security is not bad. As long as you don't show off your wealth, you won't encounter robbery. I've been living there for a year and I feel that the people there are still good. If you play, you should go to the sea. The Philippine Sea is really good.
Here absolutely recommend tours, tickets 75P / adults, 50P / children, originally saw the door thought it was not fun, but think about it is to go shopping, simply buy tickets to find that the ticket money is absolutely worthwhile, very historical flavor, although do not understand this religion (Catholicism), but with respect to the mood of visiting is very good. In addition, I met Indian local tyrants and got married yesterday. I have feels.
Especially the Baroque style is worth visiting. The statue is the crystallization of human cultural wisdom.
Nearly five hundred years of church in Manila is still beautiful.
