This is the only all-steel cathedral in Asia, and it's quite large. I didn't expect that there are several churches in Manila with different styles that are worth visiting. The whole church is also very beautiful and the interior space is large.More
It’s, so far, one of the best and most eye-catching churches I’ve seen in the Philippines. As I stepped inside the church, I was mesmerized by its all-steel structure, religious paintings and dramatic features. As far as I know, it was declared as a National Cultural Treasure in 2011 and a National Historical Landmark in 1973. A word of advice, get a guided tour to get a deeper insight into the history and architecture of this picture-perfect church.
Magnificent site to see in the Quiapo district. It is just a stone throw away from the Malacanang Palace, where the Philippine President resides and work. San Sebastian is distint for being the ONLY all steel church in the Philippines and in the entired Asian Continent. It's interior is breathtaking giving you a feel that you are somewhere in europe. Rumor has it that Gustav Eiffel, the man behind the Eiffel in France, design this beautiful church in Manila. PS. The picture posted on San Sebastian Church's profile is not actually San Sebastian Church.. I'll upload pictures shortly
It was said that this steel-built building was designed by Mr. Eiffel, the builder of the Eiffel Tower.
