Binondo Church

leave a comment »

Originally built in 1596, the Binondo Church, or the Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz, stands as a historical landmark in Manila, Philippines.

After destruction in 1762, it was rebuilt in 1852; then went on to suffer more damage with subsequent wars that followed.

The church has gone through some renovations as the years have gone by and is one of the most-renowned churches in the country.

The church is named for San Lorenzo Ruiz, who became the Philippines' first saint and was canonized in 1987.
