Powerhouse Journey : Santa Cruz Church


Ang ikalimang destinasyon na aming pinuntahan ay ang Santa Cruz Church



Pagkatapos ng isang masayang picturuan at kwentuhan about sa Monte de Piedad And Savings Bank, saan pa nga ba kami tutungo kungdi sa katabing o sa harap nitong gusali na isa rin sa mga historial place and church sa kamaynilaan ang Santa Cruz Church.



Oh before i forgot sa mga di nakakaalam ang simbahan ng Santa Cruz ay matatagpuan sa Plaza Lacson (dating Plaza Goite), sa harap nito ang isa sa mga sikat fountain ang Carriedo Water Fountain at sa silid naman nito ang  Greco-Roman styled Roman Santos Building.


The Altar of Santa Cruz Church

Katulad ng Simbahan ng Binondo mayroon din mga painting ang simbahan ng Santa Cruz Church
yung nga lang ang mga nakalagay dito ay ang mga sikat na Santo katulad ni Mother Theresa.

The Asiatic styles of architecture of the church.

According to the Marker of Historial Institute : "Santa Cruz Church was built and administered by the Jesuits up to 1768. Adjoining was the Jesuit College of San Ildefonso, founded by Gov. Alfondso Fajardo de la Tenza on Jan. 9,1724 the titular patroness of the church is Nuestra Señora Del Pilar,whose statue  was bought from Spain prior to 1768.
The confraternity of Nuestra Señora Del Pilar was canonically founded in this church in 1743.
On the surrounding plaza the british returned the city of MAnila to Simon De Anda Y'
 Salazar in 1764."

Description: The original church of Sta. Cruz was built in 1608 for the Chinese converted to Christianity by the priests of the Society of Jesus. When the Jesuits were expelled from the Philippines, the church became Dominican. The structure was damaged by the earthquake, and then during the Battle of Manila in 1945. The present structure was rebuilt in 1957.

  5. Noong nagliwaliw tayo sa mga lugar na 'to, partikyular dito sa Sta. Cruz Church, nangingibabaw ang dugo kong makakuha ng ma-sining na mga kaganapan. Pero may bumubulong din sa akin na kuhanan ko na yung mga detalye kasi marami ring sining ang nakapaloob dito. Pero di ako natinag, kasi alam ko ang purpose ng photowalk mo. Pero di ko inaasahan na masosorpresa ako sa mga nababasa ko dito. Galing boss.
