St. Andrew's Cathedral | Things to do in Parañaque City-Metro Manila
|Address:||Quirino Ave., La Huerta, Parañaque City, Metro Manila|
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.
From blocks away, the Kiu Pat Long Shiao Temple is its own landmark. The Taoist temple is an ornate display of sweeping roof curvatures and detailed dragon statues. The upper floors house altars of the temple's patron deities: the lotus-seated Goddess of Mercy on the second floor, and The Three Pure Ones on the third floor. On the third floor, the temple's main hall overlooks Manila Bay in a far distance. This top floor is cool, breezy, and bears the smell of sandalwood. A huge burning pot sits before the altar of The Three Pure Ones for lighting incense sticks. Travelers in search of answers, or enlightenment in general, may come to take part in fortune-telling practices, using kidney-shaped wood pieces and fortune sticks. Built and completed in the 1980s, Kiu Pat Long Shiao Temple is one of the largest Taoist temples in Metro Manila.
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.
