Also known as the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Pasig Cathedral is the oldest Marian parish in Asia. Like other churches in the Philippines, the cathedral follows a baroque Spanish design, whose structure is based on adobe blocks. While much of the cathedral's design was altered in the 20th century, its bell tower retains its historic appeal. Augustinian missionaries laid the parish's first foundation in 1575, and gave it the title Conventus Visitationis Mariae de Pasig (Our Lady of Visitation). Twelve years later, the parish was renamed after the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. The parish was then inaugurated into the status of a cathedral in 2003. At the right side of the cathedral is a hallway leading to the Pasig Diocesan Museum. The museum displays elaborate church vestments and historical emblems of the cathedral, such as crucifixes, candelabras, chalices, incense boats, mass gongs, church beams, and Spanish tiles.

Built in 1960, the Lopez Museum and Library is the oldest privately owned museum and library in the Philippines. The museum has about five interconnected sections. Other than the Juan Luna and Felix Hidalgo Galleries, the others display the National Hero Jose Rizal's personal belongings, modern paintings from Philippine National Artists, and some archaeological artifacts from Calatagan Excavation. The museum also holds a collection of about 300 antique Philippine maps since 1507, hand-drawn by various colonial and native cartographers.

Makati is known for its fine dining restaurants, one of the finest being Chef Jessie at the Rockwell Club.

For seafood lovers, experience her Prawns with Laing (dried taro leaves in coconut milk), a truly elegant interpretation of the humble laing. For dessert, which the restaurant is known for, Chef Jessie offers a unique Halo-Halo Souffle, a startling interpretation incorporating all the elements of the famous shaved ice dessert except for the ice: jackfruit, macapuno, red and white beans, sweet potato, leche flan, and ube halaya.
