San Pedro Macati Church

San Pedro Macati Church was constructed in 1620 with baroque architecture. It was destroyed during the British occupation of Manila in 1762 then reconstructed in 1849. In 1899-1902, the Church was a hospital for American soldiers. I found old photos, which I included later on in this post.

The reredos, I read, is still the original.

I took these photos of San Pedro Macati Church for a journal/write-up on Makati’s heritage conservation efforts three years ago. Surprising, isn’t it? For an old Church to exist in a highly urbanized city.

Can’t photo the Church from this far without the electric cables 🙁

This is how the Church looked many years ago. The church bell was included at one of its restorations.
