Isa sa mga dinarayong simbahan ng mga tao sa may kamaynilaan ang Quiapo Church.
Madalas kung ikaw mapapadaan dito marami kang makikitang mga iba't-ibang tao mula sa mahirap patungo sa mayayaman at kilalang tao sa lipunan.
Kadalasan ang mga mayayaman noon ay nagpapadasal sa mga tinatawag na Mariang Padasal, kung saan sila ang magdadasal para sayo.

August 29, 1586, Governor General Santiago de Vera founded the District of Quiapo. The Franciscan Missionaries built the first church of Quiapo with Bamboo and Nipa materials. San Pedro Bautista, a Franciscan missionary at that time was one of the founders of the Quiapo church and several other churches in Metro Manila and Laguna city. The original church was burned in 1639 and was rebuilt with a stronger edifice. It was again partially destroyed by an earthquake of 1863. Under the supervision of Fathers Eusebio de Leon and Manuel Roxas, the third church was completed in 1899. Fr. Roxas raised an unprecedented amount of PhP. 40,000.00 pesos from donations and lay contributions. In October 30, 1928, the church was caught in a fire which almost destroyed the church. Dona Encarnacion Nakpil de Orense, head of the Parish Committee, raised funds for the reconstruction of the church. Filipino Artist and architect, Juan Nakpil also rebuilt the church.
