San Agustin Church – the oldest church in the Philippines
Had the chance to pass by recently and take snap shots of San Agustin Church in the old, historic “walled city” of Intramuros in Manila.
The San Agustin Church, a Roman Catholic church built in 1607 during the Spanish colonial period, is the oldest church still standing in the Philippines.
The church was one of four Philippine churches designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993, under the classification “Baroque Churches of the Philippines”.
It was named a National Historical Landmark by the Philippine government in 1976. [Source: Wikipedia]
