Santuario de San Antonio



Santuario de San Antonio


Santuario de San Antonio in Philippines was built by the Franciscans when their original church in Intramuros of Manila, was ruined by the ravages caused by World War II towards its end. As soon as the new santuario or sanctuary was constructed, a statue of Saint Anthony was transported from the original church in Intramuros, which managed to resist the bombing effect of the war.

If you visit McKinley Road in Forbes Park, you will often find the Church thronged by people. Highly revered and esteemed by the society, Santuario de San Antonio in Philippines hosts a number of social and religious occasions like christenings, weddings and funerals. Interestingly enough, most of the posh and rich families of Manila, specially from Forbes Park and Dasmarinas Village, choose this church for observing various events, whether of grief or happiness, in the presence of Saint Anthony God.
