world pictures The Philippines: Manila: Intramuros

A few blocks away is this great survivor, the San Agustin Church, the oldest church in the Philippines.  It's the fourth building on the site, but the first and only one in stone.  Completed in 1604, it had twin bell towers, but the left one was pulled down after an earthquake of 1863 left a medial fissure running from top to bottom.  The church also survived the quake of 1880, as well as World War II.
