A View from the LRT 1 Carriedo Station- If youâ€™re taking the LRT 2, ride it all the way to the Recto Station, and then take the walkway to the LRT 1 Doroteo Jose Station. Go down to the street level to transfer to the southbound side, and then alight at the LRT 1 Carriedo Station.
If youâ€™re riding the MRT, take it all the way to the Taft-EDSA station, go through the Metropoint Mall to get to the LRT 1 EDSA Station, where all the fares are shockingly at a flat rate of Php 15.
Make sure to take in the view from the LRT 1 Carriedo station before you go down the stairs.
|Sta. Cruz Fountain- From the LRT 1 Carriedo Station, head north, or just ask for directions to the Sta. Cruz Church, whose present edifice, according to Lonely Planet, â€œdates back to 1957, after its 1608 predecessor was destroyed in WWII.â€ It is fronted by a European style fountain that spouts an excellent gush of water.|
|Ongpin Goodwill Arch- Across the Sta. Cruz fountain is the Ongpin Goodwill Arch, the entrance to hours of discoveries and fun.|
