When the Franciscans' mother church in Intramuros was destroyed in the closing days of World War II, they built their new Santuario (sanctuary) de San Antonio and installed a statue of Saint Anthony that had survived the bombing of their old beloved church. Many of Manila's wealthy families reside in nearby Forbes Park and Dasmarinas Village, so this church is where most of their christenings, weddings and funerals take place.

This is still one of the most well maintained churches in Metro-Manila. With its long walk leading to the main altar, it remains one of the favorite places for couples to have their weddings. The structure is a good blend of the old and new and shows the Spanish and Catholic influences here.

Beautiful small church with great acoustic. What I like most was it was fully air-conditioned. A very rare for a Catholic Church in the Philippines.

The Santuario de San Antonio Church is a wonderful place of Christian worship: Its solemnity is good start for any Catholic's yearning for spiritual rest and renewal. Its reputation as a elitist's church is unfair: it was not designed to be in the middle of two of Metro Manila's richest villages; it was never envisioned to be between the Philippines'... More

This is located at the middle of Mckinely Road, between Makati City and Taguig City. This is a Catholic Church being handled by the OFM priest. This is a favorite church for those who are getting married as the altar is very nice and the aisle is very long that every bride would love to walk. They have area where... More

I enjoy my weekend mass here, air conditioned for anticipated mass and Sunday masses, very comfortable, well lit and beautiful church. There is a choir that sing beautifully but only at certain times.

Even after a very late dinner, I can still go because it's open 24 hours. Every whose who in Manila choose this as their wedding church but the real magic for me is the adoration chapel.

A lovely old church with a Portuguese influence. Adored by the locals and in a good area of Manila. Across the road from a small shopping plaza.

Santuario de San Antonio is located very near the busy business district of Makati and Bonifacio Global City. It is also located in the most posh residential area in the country. If you want a bit of old architecture, church architecture and are in the Makati area, visit this church to see the grand beautiful altar. A favorite also for... More
