Established in 1630, San Miguel Church is notable for its European Baroque architecture with the beautiful symmetry of its bell towers. The church holds the National Shrine of St. Michael and the Archangels. First established as an act of gratitude, San Miguel Church was dedicated to Saint Michael, who is the patron saint of grocers, mariners, paratroopers, police and sickness, because it administered to samurais or warriors who were escaping persecution under the Tokugawa Shogunate. The church is also known as Malacañang Church because of its close proxinity to the Palace. Christine Joy Caloracan (Photo by RP Ocampo)
