I visited the oldest church in the Philippines, the Roman Catholic San Agustin, in Manila in 2006. The church’s exterior is rather in impressive and the interior is quite a contrast in terms of detail and design. San Agustin Church has seen it’s fair share of war, violence, and natural disasters which is evident by some of the ruins that still remain in the main courtyard. If you make your way to the San Agustin Church, be sure to check out the slightly creepy yet interesting crypt.
You can look through a few more of my pictures from the Philippines which I haven’t had the chance to share here before.
You managed to capture a large area of the church in this shot. I always find it difficult to portray the impressiveness of a church in a photo. Nice work!
Thank Matt. I recall having tried many angles to capture how vast the interior is, and this one was just something I tried not expecting much of. Glad it was worth the trial and error!
How absolutely amazing!!! You captured the very essence of the church with this shot.
Thanks Anjuli 😀
LOVE the chandeliers! So many churches in the Philippines…but this one is certainly stunning!
I’m a sucker for them, can’t help but take pictures of religious architecture.
