another church that's worth visiting is Malate church.


This is the main facade of the church, also a Baroque-style with a blend of Muslim architecture.

It has Solomonic columns on the second story. But, unlike other Baroque churches at that time, it has no *belfry* standing on either of its side.
*belfry - space for bells: the part of a church steeple or a tower in which bells are hung
This church was built originally on this spot in the sixteenth century by the Augustinians, It is dedicated to Nuestra Senora de Remedios (”Our Lady of Remedies”), the patroness of women in childbirth.
I have shown a partial side of the church before and i wish to show you more of its interior.

Inside it has good ventilation and spectacular stained glass etching depicting the life of Jesus Christ.

  1. This one has a very weathered look to it. I like the plants that seem to be growing from the crevices in the block work.

  2. interesting architectural...seems as if they've block in where perhaps stained glass windows used to be? like many old buildings it needs a cleaning.
    thanks for sharing with us.

  3. I've passed by this church like a million times and never have I stop to see what's inside. Sayang.


  4. You mentioned a guard previously. Should we expect a guard in here as well? I don't think I've ever seen a guard in a church. Well, not counting church staff who might hang around for those in need of information or what not. I suppose they provide some limited guard function as well.

  5. It looks beautiful in a gloomy way.

  6. sharon: i think the greens along the crevices just means the church needs to be refurbished. tnx! ^-^

    erin: tnx! ^_^

    photocache: sayang nga! i think the church looks better nowadays,
    they have plans for restoration.

    per stromsjo: lol! yes, they have security guards here as well...^-^
    in other countries you don;t see guards hovering around you but in here, well, you sort of need to...things can get a little chaotic here at times. ^-^

    andreea: tnx! ^-^
    sandy carlson: tnx 2! ^-^
