Belen, San Marcelino Street, Paco, Manila

While St. Pancratius Chapel is not as old as the churches listed above, it is located in the historic Paco Park. Originally named as Cementerio General de Dilao, it is the former municipal cemetery of Manila where Dr. Jose Rizal was secretly interred after his execution at Bagumbayan (now Rizal Park) in 1896. Today, the dome-shaped chapel is surrounded by a lush recreational garden.
