Ayala Museum in Makati City is an ambitious take on viewing the country’s rich history from a refreshing perspective. Two of the museum’s most prominent galleries are the Diorama Experience and the Gold of Ancestors.
The Diorama Experience highlights 60 events that shaped Philippine history. The scenes are recreated in miniature wooden figures, stage-designed in glass boxes like a cultural barbie house. Located on the fourth floor, meanwhile, the Gold of Ancestors showcases ancient Filipinos’ incredible craftsmanship on the most malleable and most coveted metal on earth, gold. This gallery displays an astonishing 1,059 gold items pre-dating the Spanish period. Besides these two prominent galleries, Ayala Museum has an extensive collection of Chinese and Southeast Asian ceramics, as well as rare fashionable garments from the 18th and 19th century Philippines. On the third floor, you’ll find the Masters Galleries, which feature pioneering Filipino artists such as Fernando Amorsolo and Fernando Zobel.
Surrounded by skyscrapers, Ayala Triangle is an urban oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the business district Makati. Visitors can go jogging here, have a picnic, marvel at the public sculptures, or simply hangout. Coffee shops and restaurants also dot one side of the park, serving as a favorite hangout place among young professionals. With more than a hundred trees, Ayala Triangle is the largest park with the most number of trees in Makati City. At the corners of the park are three monuments: a statue of Benigno Aquino, the assassinated Martial Law Hero; of Sultan Kudarat, the Sultan of Mindanao during the Spanish era; and of Gabriela Silang, the revolutionary heroine from Ilocos during the Spanish invasion.
Baclaran Church gets its name from the word baklad, meaning "fish trap". Located along Coastal Road and facing Manila Bay, Baclaran used to be a place where villagers collect their fish. Today, Baclaran Church, also called the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, is one of the three most visited churches in Metro Manila. It attracts about 120,000 devotees every Wednesday, otherwise known as Baclaran Day. The church's highlight is the widely venerated icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. The icon was brought to Baclaran by Redemptionists priests in 1932, where it drew a steady number of followers. Built in 1953, Baclaran Church and its attached Convento were initially dedicated to Saint Therese of Lisieux. When the church opened to the public, however, it was quickly associated with Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
