At 413 years old, one of the oldest structures in Makati I would assume as the city used to be a swampland.Was actually surprised that there’s a church (a historic one at that) this side of Guadalupe.It’s a beautiful structure.Perfect for weddings I believe.Located in a “depressed area”,with the gleaming buildings of Rockwell looming over it- another proof that God has a sense of humor.Today is Easter Sunday. (at Nuestra Señora de Gracia Parish)
Just one of dozens of life-size statues and images of Jesus Christ scattered across different barangays at this district.The designs range from kitschy to downright disturbing to somewhat interesting.This Semana Santa ‘ritual’ has been going on for years according to our co-worker/guide Marj who has lived here all her life. (at Brgy. Poblacion, Makati City)
After two years of earthquake retrofitting, the 400 year old Manila Cathedral has finally re-opened.Aside from those blasted TV’s, everything looks perfect.I had a hard time distinguishing the tourists from the churchgoers as everyone kept taking photos before, during and after Mass.Today is Palm Sunday.
