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

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.

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

We visited this church as part of our pilgrimage tour of Bulacan and Manila. It is a museum piece which must be preserved as it played important roles in the history of The Philippines' politic and that of the Catholic Church.
