Learn More about a Great City at the QC Experience Museum




The QCX (QC Experience) is an interactive museum showcasing the city’s rich history and transformation as the country’s premier city.  It is an interactive socio-cultural museum and green compliant building, and enables visitors to relive and experience moments in the city’s history with the use of technology.

As an experiential museum, QCX also provides visitors a chance to interact with the displays and allow them to take selfies in each gallery. The museum has 16 interactive galleries where visitors can also take advantage of all the photo opportunities they offer or even shoot and watch themselves in videotape.

The QCX displays the City’s humble beginnings starting with Manuel L Quezon’s vision on a hill, the present-day Quezon City, and the vision towards its great, green and growing future.



Pay Homage to the City’s Patroness


Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary La Naval Manila is the title under which the Blessed Virgin Mary is adored for her intercession during the Battles of La Naval de Manila.  Quezon City adopted the Virgin Mary of La Naval as its Patroness by virtue of City Council Resolution Number 9645, S-1974. 


Sto. Domingo Church is the home of the 16th-century ivory and wood statue of La Naval.  Every 2nd of Sunday of October, the city celebrates the Feast of Our Lady of La Naval and is highlighted by a procession.  October is also the founding month of Quezon City.  


Feel Patriotism at the Cry of Pugad Lawin Site


 
The Cry of Pugad Lawin Shrine was developed by the Pugad Lawin Historical Committee created in 1983.   It was the site of the house of Juan Ramos, son of Melchora “Tandang Sora” Aquino.   On August 23, 1896, Andres Bonifacio together with other Katipuneros tore their cedulas on this place as a sign of rebellion against the Spanish rule, hence, the “Cry of Pugad Lawin.” The site was developed in 1998.  The statues were made by National Artist Napoleon Abueva.

Find Divine (and Design) Inspiration at the Church of the Gesu


The Roman Catholic Church of the Ateneo de Manila University was designed by Jose Pedro Recio and Carmelo Casas.  The design is inspired by the Philippine National House – the Bahay Kubo (nipa hut).  It occupies a total of 10,200 sq. m. The Church’s triangular structure signifies the Holy Trinity and can accommodate up to 1,000 sitting parishioners.


Beckon at Bravery at People Power Monument



The People Power Monument was made to commemorate the bravery and unity of Filipinos against the dictatorship during the People Power Revolution in February 1986.  It is here where people stood in front of tanks and offered flowers to soldiers.  It was created in 1993 by Ed Castrillo.  The Catholic Church supported the revolt by calling all Filipinos who believed in democracy to converge at EDSA and protect government officials who withdrew support from the Marcos administration. 

Say Prayers at Sto. Domingo Church

Sto. Domingo Church was designed by National Artist Arch. Jose Ma. Zaragoza and its engineers were Alberto Guevara and Agustin Gosingco.  The murals on the life of St. Dominic de Guzman (the Patron Saint of the Church) at the dome of the church were made by National Artist Carlos “Botong” Francisco.  The stained glass were done by Galo Ocampo while the bas relief at the entrance were made by Italian sculptor Francisco Monti in 1954.
