Manila is home to a gorgeous array of cultural and historical landmarks. One particularly beautiful example is the Malate Church, a fine example of Baroque architecture that faces the Rajah Suleiman Park and is just beyond Manila Bay. Dedicated to “Our Lady of Remedies”, the patron saint of childbirth, the church houses a magnificent statue of the Virgin Mary that dates back to seventeenth century Spain. It also holds a replica of Michelangelo’s famous “Pieta” sculpture. One of Manila’s oldest churches, it was built in the sixteenth century by Augustinian friars. The church has encountered a long history of destruction and repair, on account of damage sustained during the Second World War and being destroyed by a typhoon in 1868. However, it has survived the onslaught of history and is a resplendent tribute to the Virgin Mary in Christian lore.
