San Sebastian Church is one of a few churches in Manila that was the revival of Gothic architecture. The interior is high with thin pillars imitating late Gothic. There are a lot of contrasted ribs on the roof which is also the imitation of the late Gothic architecture. The windows of this church are decorated with stained glasses. They make the church look quite sombre inside. This is a technique of limiting the light according to Gothic architecture.
