The San Agustin Church in Intramuros, Manila is one historic church where hundreds and hundreds of weddings are held each year. A favorite location for Metro Manila couples exchanging vows, the San Agustin Church has also become a tourist attraction whenever there are ceremonies going on.
This church is actually the 3rd generation structure build on this location. The original one was the first religious structure built by the Spanish in Luzon back in 1571. Since it was only made of bamboo and nipa, it was completely destroyed by fire in 1974. The second one, also built in wood went down in flames in 1583.
The current structure of the San Augustin Church which you can see now inside Intramuros in Manila was built in 1586 and was competed in 1607. Essentially, the current building is more than 400 years old.
Today, the San Augustin Church stands as one of the oldest churches found in Metro Manila. Grand weddings are held here almost every weekends and the hallways and monastery attached on the side are filled with antiques and memorabilias.
