The facade of the church is ver iconic, I've seen it in a lot of pictures but I'm really disappointed that both the Catholic Church and the Government of the Philippines have failed in restoring a lot of the historic buildings in the country... Quiapo church has a nice front facade but the interior of the church is very modern and it doesn't match the history of the structure, I know World-War-II must have damaged the building but I don't think that's an excuse for reconstructing it in a very grotesque and unattractive way... Manila Cathedral is probably one of the better reconstructions after World-War-II because it actually gave you an (old world feel)... now they retrofitted it and changed the black and white tiles which made the structure look much more modern again but at least it's not as bad as this... I just don't understand why restoring a historic building means modernizing it in the Philippines... Restorations of historical buildings in Europe means sticking to the original designs and motifs of the structure... It's very disturbing to me that a man in the 1950's could actually restore the Manila Cathedral to make it look much much older than it actually is but then other than that most if not all restorations of historic buildings by the government in the Philippines is quite garbage and disgusting eyesores... It's a really good thing that Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar is actually doing a really great job in preserving, restoring and even recreating some of the historic buildings from around the country.

One of the most revered Catholic Churches in the City of Manila is the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene or more popularly known as the Quiapo Church. Situated in the heart and crowded place in the Manila, throngs of devotees from all walks of life, from all over the country flock to the Church every Friday. The Black Nazarene was said to be brought to the Philippines by the Spanish Colonizers. Based on the accounts of the elders, the name black Nazarene was derived when the old Church where the image was housed was gutted by fire. Due to the said fire, the image was blackened by the said fire, but the image was not destroyed. Accounts of fulfilled prayers of the devotees abound. The feast day of the Black Nazarene falls every 9th of January, and the procession is participated by millions of devotees.

I go here at least once every year. Normally during the new year season. I make it a point to visit and pray for thanksgiving for the past year and for a safe and fruitful year ahead. The place is a bit dirty and confusing but it is all part of the experience.
