The Malate Church and Mass Schedule

Malate area is one of the top-visited places in Metro Manila by tourists. With its proximity to the airport, there are available hotels and restaurants in the area. All of these are offered for the convenience of all the guests. Not to mention, there are also numerous spots to visit in the area. One of which is the Malate Church. 


The Malate Church or also known as Our Lady of Remedies Parish is situated in the district of Malate in the City of Manila. It was established in 1588 by the Augustinian chapter, making it a part of the rich and grand history of the country. In 1591, the stone structure of the Church along with the convent. Natural calamities like earthquakes and fire, as well as war during the occupations of different nationalities, tested the strength of the structure. Though there were evident destructions, people were able to stand firm and re-built the Church.

Malate Church is a combined Mexican Baroque and Muslim Style church. The shapes of the doors, windows, pillars, and everything in it speak of unique architectural beauty. It has twisted columns as its foundation and a retablo type of façade and is overlooking the Rajah Sulayman Plaza. The Virgin Mary, specifically the Nuestra Senora de Los Remedios, the patroness of childbirth, is the patron saint of the Church. The statue of Our lady of Remedies came from Spain, brought by the early friars in 1624. Up to this day, you can still see this statue at the altar of the Church. With its antiquity, the image is one of the reasons why people would go here, hoping that the image would bring miraculous answers to the believer’s wishes. 

Nearby Spots to Visit

Another new spot from this Church is the Manila Bay. Mass-goers would usually take a walking stroll in the area after attending the mass. During beautiful weather, they would even head to the Manila Bay area and watch the beautiful sunset. Such an ideal distance of the Malate Church to different spots to visit is just one of its unique features.

The Experience 

The overall vibe of the place is similar to those that are found in old churches across the country. The ancient vibe is there, but one would feel at home and peace. Pilgrims, missionaries, and even local tourists would usually flock to the area to hear a mass celebration or also to see the building from afar. Aside from the fact that Malate Church is in a very convenient place, it has the natural ability to capture the hearts of people. I do not know if it is in the people serving in the Church, or it is the building itself that makes it even more beautiful and captivating. 

If you happen to visit Manila either for a local trip or just a short layover, I urge you to visit this place. Not only is it aesthetically appealing, but it also brings a feeling of peace and serenity. Have a fantastic and safe journey!
