Visita Iglesia (Church Visitation) is the Catholic tradition of praying the fourteen stations of the cross in seven different churches during Holy Week. Pre-war, Visita Iglesia was done in Intramuros' seven churches. After earthquakes and warfare destroyed five of the seven original churches, it has been acceptable to recite the prayers in other churches.
If you're planning to do your Visita Iglesia within Manila this coming Holy Week, you might want to put these seven beautiful and historical churches in your itineraries.
