FOOT: Snaps outside Quiapo Church



The facade of Quiapo Church. It was a friday and there were many church goers who content themselves with the big screen outside the church where they can view the priest leading the mass.

Quiapo Church has graced many films and tv episodes. The church is known when the feast of the Black Nazarene every January 9 is celebrated.
