  1. One of the oldest catholic churches in the Philippines, the Minor Basilica of San Lorenzo Ruiz, also known to many as the Binondo Church, was built in 1596. Its patron saint, San Lorenzo Ruiz, is the first Filipino saint. Living under the Dominican priests, he served as a sacristan in the convent of Binondo church in his early years.

  2. Hope this church would have an honest to goodness restoration, at present, it doesn't look that good, like a page from the comics, as the photos suggest.
