Photo & Description
The San Miguel Church was built in the 1630s in Manila in tribute to the Spanish Governor General, who narrowly escaped death during a military campaign. The church also provided assistance and assistance to Japanese Christians fleeing persecution during the feudal regime of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Since many of these exiles were samurai, that is, warriors, the church was dedicated to Archangel Michael (or Saint Miguel in Spanish), the great martyr. The current church, known for its surprisingly symmetrical twin bell towers, was built in the European Baroque style. It is located near the government palace of Malakanang and is a mandatory part of the excursion program. In front of the church, there is a small pretty square with tropical trees and flowers and fountains, which is in perfect harmony with the religious building.
