1. Santa Cruz Church, Manila
The first church was built when the Arrabal (Suburb) of Santa Cruz was established by the Jesuits in the early 1600’s. The church had undergone many repairs and reconstruction, with the last reconstruction done in the 1950’s. Today, the church architecture employs a California Spanish Mission Facade silhouette with the usual Filipino (Asian-Hispanic Mix) baroque ornamentation. The church facade is topped with an effigy statue of Our Lady of the Pillars, the patroness of the church whose feast happens during the second week of October.
