Sightseeing in Makati

Guadalupe Ruins
For a tour that would take visitors back to 1629, the Guadalupe Ruins along Bernardino Street near J. P. Rizal Avenue in Guadalupe Viejo, Makati is an ideal place. The Ruins is actually a centuries-old church—Nuestra Senora de Gracia Church—typical of the Doric style of architecture popular in the 17th century. Here, tourists are treated to amazing sights of the original hewn stones that were cut to size at a Guadalupe quarry, formed into church walls and vaults and buttressed for extra support to withstand the test of time. When sightseeing in Makati, most tourists, regardless of religious creed, visit this place.

Ayala Museum
A favorite arts and history museum among tourists out for educational sightseeing in Makati is Ayala Museum. It is at the corner of Dela Rosa and Makati Avenues right in the center of the financial district. It was built by the Ayala Foundation, Inc. in 1967. Tourists and students having a field trip enjoy sights of Philippine History in detailed diorama presentation, interesting displays of miniature Filipino indigenous water crafts, paintings by 19th century Filipino artists, collections of ethnic tools and utensils, and art collections of masterpieces by world renowned Filipino masters. There’s a Museum Café on the ground floor for interesting creative dishes.

Makati Museum
There’s an old building at the corner of J.P. Rizal and A. Mabini Streets that used to house the municipal hall until in 1956 when it became a public library. Today, it is called Makati Museum and keeps in its care a set of pre-historic animal teeth found within the locality, among many other artifacts and relics. It is a museum “dressed up” differently each year, depending on a theme highlighted. This year it celebrates military uniforms of the Philippine Army since the 19th century revolution against Spain.
