Quiapo

Quiapo

One of the 16 districts in Manila, Quiapo is an eclectic display of 1930’s American art deco architecture and congested slum areas. It is home to a mix of Philippine religions, housing a mosque, Catholic church and several animistic, fortune-telling stalls (several of which are, ironically, at the church plaza).

Quiapo Church is a landmark for the faithful, who flock to the site by the thousands to see the Black Nazarene on its feast day, January 9. The Black Nazarene, a dark, wooden image of Jesus Christ from 17th century Mexico, is said to have miraculous properties for devotees.
There are a number of historical houses of architectural significance, such as the Paterno, Zamora, and Padilla mansions, as well as the Bahay Nakpil-Bautista. These can be visited in arranged walking tours around historic Manila.

It is relatively easy to get to Quiapo from most parts of Manila, with one of the most affordable ways being to take the first line of Light Rail Transit (LRT) train.

There are several affordable objects one can buy as a souvenir along the main road, or at Plaza Miranda, which is just in front of Quiapo Church. These include religious items, flowers, fruits, candles, amulets and tech accessories.

For food, there are Philippine fast food branches and street food stalls, as well as Halal eateries to cater to Muslims.
