Inside the Basilica Menor Del Sto. Niño

The oldest Roman Catholic church in the Philippines, this minor basilica is believed to have been built on the spot where the statue of Sto Niño was found in 1565 by Spanish explorers led by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. The present building, which was completed from 1739-1740, has been the sanctuary of the oldest religious image in the country ever since.

note: This was taken hand-held, which was a mistake since it could have been sharper :( Also the shutter speed wasn't very fast thus a shake in the hand is extremely noticeable.
