Plaza Miranda is the public plaza or square in front St. John the Baptist Church or more popularly known as Quiapo Church which is located in the old downtown Manila. The plaza was named after Jose Sandino y Miranda, who served as secretary of the treasury of the Philippines for 10 years beginning in 1853.
Nowadays, aside from the unsightly election paraphernalias hanging and plastered everywhere, the plaza is now filled with ambulant vendors selling products ranging from flowers, colored candles with specific purposes (candles for love, good luck, healing the sick, pardon, etc.), fruits, healing herbs, to body massages, palm and card reading.
