“One of the most grand standing, majestically designed churches in the Philippines, and perhaps one of the most admired within the Catholic community, the Manila Cathedral has gone through generations and has stood since the Spanish Colonial Era.”
“The Paco Park and Cemetery is a beautiful and quiet spot in the suburb of Paco in Manila. It is designed in a circular form -- in a structure of two concentric stone walls with a promenade on top -- with a rotunda church (St Pancratius) and old-fashioned gardens in the center. Built in 1820, the niches in the walls of Paco Cemetery received the bodies of the victims of the cholera epidemic of that year. A former Spanish Governor General of the Philippines, Ramon Solano y Lladeral, and a number of bishops are buried in the cemetery. Three priests, Fathers José A. Burgos, Mariano C. Gomez and Jacinto R. Zamora, who were executed in 1872 for their suspected role in the Cavite mutiny (a 19th century insurrection against Spanish rule), are buried in this Park. The priests (often referred to collectively as Gomburza) were an inspiration for later Filipino independence advocates such as José Rizal and are regarded as martyrs by the Philippine nation”
“One of the iconic and miraculous church in Manila that stood the test of time.”
