This is a must see. The opulence although in disrepair is still evident. Hard to imagine how much money spent to build this!

How many tourists visit Santo Niño shrine?

Response from Daphne K | Reviewed this property |
That depends, but the tour requires at least 3 people per batch. Sometimes they tour two batches, so that's 6 people. It's a great place kinda old but very lux.
