  1. It is the home of the Black Nazarene

Quiapo Church is the home of the Black Nazarene, the known miraculous dark image of Jesus. One of the most celebrated feasts here is the Feast of the Black Nazarene, which includes series of activities like the “Pahalik (adoration of the image)” and the “Traslaccion (iconic procession of the image).” Thus, this celebration gathers millions of devotees, all aiming to take a glimpse, and hopefully, get close to the miraculous image.

2. It has undergone a series of reconstruction 

The Quiapo Church was built by the missionaries, Order of the Friars Minor. The original materials used are frames and nipa leaves. When the arrival of soldiers in 1574 took place, they burned the Church to the ground. It was only back in 1588 that the Church was rebuilt, dedicating it to Saint John the Baptist. Another tragedy took place back in 1603 when the Church was once again burned, leading to its turned over to the Jesuits only to be returned to the seculars in 1639. The full completion of the Church was in 1686.

A series of unfortunate events threatened the safety of the Church. This includes the attempted actions of the British to destroy the Church in 1762 and an earthquake in 1863. The reconstruction of the Church started in 1879, and the completion took place in 1889. A fire once more devoured a part of the Church in 1928. Still, due to the generosity of sponsors and devotees, it was reconstructed in 1933 under the creativity of Architect Juan Nakpil. Thus, the addition of the dome and the new belfry took place. The enlarged Church and added lateral walls followed as part of the reconstruction in 1984 with the supervision of Architect Jose Maria Zaragosa.

3. Baroque Architecture

The presence of Corinthian columns and tremendous scrolls along with the quatrefoil windows make it evident that Quiapo Church was designed following the Baroque architecture. This is not anymore a mystery since this specific type of architecture heavily influenced old churches built back during its construction time. Despite its multiple reconstructions, the people made it appoint that the touch of its original architecture remains.

4. Parochial School

Tracing back history, we will notice that for as long as there is Church, there will always be a school. In this case, they established the Quiapo Parochial School back in 1951, having the Black Nazarene as the patron saint. They attended the needs of the parochial students in their thirst for knowledge and education. Thus, the combined power of teaching and catechism was reinforced. Later on, the name of the school was changed to Nazarene Catholic School.

5. Vendors in the Facility 

Faith healers, as well as those who believe in the power of herbal medicine, usually flock the area. They sell a lot of herbal medicine, beginning from leaves to roots as the main ingredients. As ironic as it may sound, there are also vendors selling herbal products, which facilitates abortion despite its moral and legal conflicts. At times, women would intentionally abort babies and leave them in front of the Church, leading to a lot of ethical and legal disputes. Also, fortune tellers are rampant in the area.

Getting to know the history of Quiapo Church and what it is about is a way of learning the Filipino culture and religiosity. Centuries had passed, and people made it appoint that the Church destroyed multiple times still manage to arise stronger, and braver than it was before.
