The Quiapo Church is located along Quezon Boulevard in Manila. It is home to the 17th century life-sized image of the Black Nazarene. It was built by the Franciscans in 1586 using bamboo and nipa materials. The church has since survived two big fires, two earthquakes and the 1945 bombing of Manila. It was rebuilt in 1984 and was blessed three years later by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal Sin.
