San Felipe Neri Church in Mandaluyong

Mandaluyong City sits at the heart of Metropolitan Manila. Nestled inside the city landscape is a charming haven that is called San Felipe Neri Church. This quiet spiritual sanctuary is found amid a sprawling area of natural beauty.


San Felipe Neri Church is one of the oldest churches in the metropolis. Like other Catholic churches in the Philippines, it was run by Spanish friars. Its facade has a semicircular arch main entrance flanked by niches and twin bell towere with pyramid roofs. For some time it was the site of bloody encounters between Filipino revolutionaries and Spanish soldiers during the Revolution of 1896.

 

Getting Around

Mandaluyong City has numerous taxis, buses and jeepneys that ply its busy streets. The Metro Rail Transit traverses the length of EDSA and passes through Pasay, Makati, Mandaluyong, San Juan, and Quezon City.
