San Ignacio Church - Intramuros

Isa sa mga una at lumang simbahan na makikita loob ng Intramuros ang San Ignacio Church, ngunit sa kasamaang palad ang simbahan na ito ay nasira dahil sa nagdaang digmaan noong 1945.


Anu nga ba ang naging papel ng simbahan na ito sa loob ng Intramuros?

Sinu ang nagpatakbo ng simbahan na ito?

Ayon sa blog site ng Intramurosmanila ;

The church (neo-classical in style with two towers) was built by the Jesuits in 1889. The famous Filipino sculptor Isabelo Tampingco and his students worked on the lavish woodwork on its interior. However, it was greatly destroyed during the war and was left in ruins to date. At one time it became the E.J. Neil warehouse. Currently, there is an archaeological excavation at the site of its ruins, it is said that San Ignacio Church will be the future site of Museo de Intramuros that will house the religious collection of Intramuros Administration.

Noong pumunta ako dito ay hinahanap ko ang statue na ito ngunit sa kasamaang palad di ko na ito nakita.

Ito na siya ngaun ( May 2012)

Oh before i forget the Statue symbolize the first five religious orders to arrive in the Philippines,
the Augustinians, the Franciscans, the Jesuits, the Dominicans and the Recollects.

  1. Parang di ko 'to masyadong napapansin sa Intramuros, pero thanks for sharing this with us.. :) Ang dami sanang magagandang simbahan sa Intramuros kung di sila nasira sa digmaan, sunog at lindol.

  2. Wars are never good then and now... we are left with ruins to photograph but it would have been grander if the buildings were actually standing as they were...nice shots, thanks for the informative post as well...

  6. I have always wanted to explore Intramuros because of the sheer richness of history that it holds. Sana naman yung mga ganyang structure na malaki ang papel sa ating kasaysayan ay hindi napapabayaan ng ganyan.

    Sana makapunta kami diyan before (or during) and after ng excavation. I want my little girl to see it din and remember how "it used to be" (which is the 'now' for her).

  7. True. Sana di na mangyari sa 'ting panahon. What we're left with are the ruins and a great/sad story to tell, depends on how you want to look at it.

  10. Pag nakakakita ako ng ganitong ruins, naaalala ko ito: One of the million things I want to do is to have the opportunity to restore old buildings to its previous glory. Re-building ruins and restoring old structure is like remaking our legacy. Sana maranasan ko yon to be part of such project in this lifetime... pangarap lang...

  18. took some shots of this place too last year ..hope the government could help in restoring such a historic place.

  19. before any restoration, it's standard practice to do an excavation first to see if they can still find something of historical value underneath before it's built over.

  20. The old San Ignacio Church was destroyed them by combined Filipino-American forces during the three day battle of Intramuros under the liberation of Manila on 1945 and killing Japanese forces and after post-war the old church was never rebuild and not back to normal again and restoration.
