The Quiapo Church in Manila is probably the most popular church in the Philippine archipelago. This church is officially known as Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene.

This religious edifice houses the Black Nazarene; a much venerated statue of Jesus Christ which many people believe has miraculous attributes.

The Feast of the Black Nazarene is regarded as one of the most spectacular religious events that take place in the Philippine history. Every 9th of January, thousands of devotees from all walks of life come to the district of Quiapo to take part in the procession as a way of strengthening their faith or fulfilling their vow to Lord.
