As a Daddy of two and a husband of one (just kidding Mahal). I often find myself in a situation that I have no idea where to find a secure and convenient place to park our car. Then just like that a light bulb moment. A blog that gives readers an idea where to find a parking space for your precious car. It is about places where I go mostly one example is in Quiapo Church.
We as a family make it a point to go to Quiapo church at least once a week. I started this solemn devotion to our Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno for the past 10 years. Now that we, as a family, go to fulfill our obligation, we need to take our car to go there. To be honest with you the first time we went to Quiapo using our car, I parked all the way out to Binondo. That is the only place I know where there’s a parking space which is safe and secure. We need to walk at least 500 meters and weave through traffic of Avenida just to go to the church.
After that I made it a point to find a much more closer parking space, near the church but still safe and secure. Then I found this parking space. The entrance is sometimes covered by vehicles that you might not notice it especially if it is Wednesday which is designated as Quiapo day.
How To Go There
If your coming from España, driving along Quezon Blvd., you need to pass by Quiapo church, do not take the Quezon bridge, keep to the right the road going under neat the bridge look to the right side you will find there a Mercury drug store, 3 to 4 stores after that is the parking space. It is big enough to accommodate 20 vehicles and it has a lot of manpower to guard the cars parked there, I could not say security guard because there is none. They also allow cars to park outside but you do not need to worry it is completely safe based from my experience.
There is no roof, which is common nowadays. Even in malls where we come to spend our money, we still end up paying for parking even if there is no roof. Motorcycles can also park there and there is a small space allocated for them.
It is run by Adelo Development Corp.. If you checked out the parking rate on the first photo, I think you’ll find that it’s not bad considering how close it is located. Did I mention that it is just few steps away from the church? Yes, that’s how close it is. You can also park there if you’re going to Raon. If you’re are going to Quiapo to buy Bicycle parts, there is another parking space which is located on the other side of the road which is directly located in front of Quiapo church but the entrance of this parking space is very hard to find because there is a construction going on beside it. I will write about that in another time.
