|I was canvassing shells handicraft for my Aunt who lives in US when I glanced at this church from far so I went near and stopped in front of Quiapo Church to have a photo ops.|
Quiapo Church is a Roman Catholic church located in Quiapo, Manila.
Busy Street of Carriedo
The church is one of the most popular churches in the country. It is home of the Black Nazarene, a much venerated statue of Jesus Christ which many people believe has miraculous attributes; because of this the church is sometimes referred to as the "Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene".
The foundations of the church was built in 1582 and survived the devastation of World War II despite surrounding buildings being completely destroyed. The church was painted cream after the original Mexican Baroque edifice was burned down in 1928. (Wikipedia)
