La Huerta Chapel was erected in 1776 in honor of its patron saint, St. Nicolas de Tolentino. Also known as San Nicolas Chapel, La Huerta Chapel is one of Augustinian sub-parishes that sprung up in Parañaque. The structure is composed of adobe bricks with white paint accent outlining its exterior. It houses an antiquated brass bell that was once hung at its belfry, resounding throughout the community of La Huerta. In the past, La Huerta Chapel was turned into a barracks and ammunition storage by the Spanish army. Since then, the brick structure has survived two major reconstructions, one in the late 1950s and another in 1993. Today, besides being a center for afternoon prayers, the chapel hosts colorful community festivals such as Caracoles, Panisetos, and Sunduan.
Also called St. Andrew's Cathedral, Parañaque Cathedral is the first Spanish church built outside the walled city of Intramuros. The cathedral serves as a satellite to San Agustin Church in Intramuros, the oldest church in the Philippines. While it is named after its patron saint St. Andrew the Apostle, the cathedral is more popular as a pilgrimage site to the devotees of Our Lady of Good Events. The church was originally built of bamboo in 1580. The church's stone version was torn down in 1662, following an order for the demolition of all stone churches outside Intramuros. The church was rebuilt some 20 years later. Today, the cathedral looks contemporary after a major renovation in 2009. The Diocesan Shrine was raised to the status of a cathedral in 2003, following the creation of the Diocese of Parañaque in 2002 by Pope John Paul II.
San Dionisio Chapel is an old Spanish chapel famous for housing an image of its headless patron saint, St. Denis or Tata Dune. Surrounding the edifice are a belfry tower, a concrete platform for comedy performances, an aged tree providing shading afternoon congregations, and a mortuary. The entire compound depicts a distinctive sense of the San Dionisio community. While it is a spiritual sanctuary for the elders, San Dionisio Chapel extends its support to different communal activities, hosting cultural events including the annual Moro-Moro, and the biennial Sunduan. It has a long history of promoting civic campaigns and cooperative-sponsored programs, all in dedication to the residents' well-being and economic security.
