A beautiful old church, originating in the early 1780s. It was destroyed by fire and earthquakes several times and rebuilt over the years since. It is the home of the 3rd oldest statue of Santo Nino in the Philippines - the oldest and original being the statue held in the Cathedral in Cebu which dates to the first expedition to the region from Mexico in the early 1520s. The second statue is the one in the Cathedral in Tondo.
