The National Museum of the Philippines has declared the Malate Church as an important cultural property on April 22, in accordance with Presidential Decree No. 374 and Republic Act No. 10066. Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan witnessed the unveiling of the marker and declaration.

The Malate Church is a 435-year old Mexican-Baroque styled church located in Malate, Manila. It was considered a qualifier under the category of Spanish colonial era church complexes under the Republic Act.

The symbolic signing and turn-over was headed by Our Lady of Remedios Parish (OLRP) Priest Fr. Leo Distor, SSC, and National Museum of the Philippines Administrative Officer IV Mr. Roderick Manaloto.


The said signing was then witnessed by Vicar Forane of Nuestra Señora de Gracia Parish Church Fr. Joel Rescober, OLRP Coordinator Atty. Marge Condes, and the Mayor herself.

The declaration of Malate Church as an important cultural property ensures its preservation and protection for future generations. The National Museum of the Philippines will now oversee the conservation and restoration of the church and its accompanying structures.

The declaration also acknowledges the historical and cultural significance of the church in the Philippines, particularly in Manila.
