Shoe Museum was formerly a rice mill/bigasang bayan and estimated to be close to 300 years old

Built by the Augustinians in 1700's, the church was destroyed by 2 earthquakes in 1816 and 1830 and by fire in 1891. Our Lady of Abandoned church stands as one of the oldest churches in Marikina were countless spectacular weddings and religious events take place.

Converted as a historic two-century old Kapitan Moy Building into a Cultural Center to serve as venue of various activities showcasing Filipino tradition in music, visual arts, literature and the like. It is where the first pair of shoes in the Philippines was made and became a favorite venue for social functions because of its unique ambiance.
