Beautiful church from the exterior to the interiors. Simple but with a statement. I just hope the place be maintained as to the historical carvings and ceiling designs. At the time we visited a wedding was to be held. The choir was vibrant to envelop the venue like a choir of angels were present. Lovely place to meditate and reflect.... More

Barasoain Church is small but very historic and beautiful. The facade of the church is quite simple but charming. The church doors got carvings of saints and very pretty. The interior of the church is in white and gold. The paintings on its walls and ceiling are the silent witness to important events in the Philippine democracy. If you have... More

People are nice.. The church is nice but the roads are narrow so expect heavy traffic on weekends or Sundays.. Didnt get a chance to visit the museum as it is closed on Sundays.

Barasoain's historical significance should be enough to make anyone decide to visit the church. Nevertheless, the Barasoain Church perhaps among the most picturesque (and widely recognizable) church facade in the Philippines as it used to be printed in the P10 bill. If you want to visit Barasoain, you should then go tour the nearby Old Malolos -- the Spanish district... More

Many years ago, this church was commemorated on the back of the national 10 peso bill. It was here on the 15th September 1898 that Gen Aguinaldo established a revolutionary government. The Revolutionary Congress was inaugurated at this church. It was at this church that President Estrada took his oath of office as president almost a century later. This is... More

this is one of the best churches that you can really feel the presence of our Lord. infront of the church you can buy the famous ensaymada and breads. there is also a museum at the 2nd floor of the church wherein you can take pictures and read about our history.

The church is not that big, but fascinating. One of the oldest church in the Philippines and declared as National landmark and famous among pilgrims due to miraculous Lady. It has also significant contribution to Phil. History having earned the title as the Cradle of Democracy. I got a "warm feeling " inside the church, the golden altar shines on... More

A well worthy effort to pass through when near Manila. The architectural design was well preseved and you would be mermerized with its historical significance during the Spanish era. The area though is a bit challenge as it is located in the heart of the town. But you can ask around for directions as most of the people are freindly... More
