Binondo Church is located in China town area. It is north of Pasig River. The church was greatly damaged during the Second World War. Hence the façade was rebuilt imitating the old façade.
The façade of this church is classic. The gable is triangular supported by ionic and Corinthians. It is worth noticing that the façades of almost every church in Manila were built in classic style. The belfry of Binondo Church was built since 16 century and it is not destroyed by the war. The belfry is octagon. The octagon belfry is built up into layers and each layer is different in level. Each floor is decorated with wall posts and camber. At the top appears dome and lantern. The style of this bell tower resembles Chedi (Tha) in Chinese art.
