    hi there,

    The district of Quiapo is where you will find the famed Black Nazarene, which is a an ebony statue that depicts the image of Christ, and it was brought to Manila in 1606.

    Some locals believe that the Black Nazarene is a miraculous statue, and they aim to benefit from its magical powers by touching it during the Black Nazarene Procession.

    Also, the district is a great place to enjoy shopping at the Quiapo Street Market in Manila, specially the Quinta Market, which is another unique part of Quiapo Manila that you should visit, as it boasts an interesting atmosphere.
