Vista Recto - Location & Vicinity

Vista Recto is located at 1896 C. M. Recto Avenue, Quiapo, Manila.

The Vista Recto development sits in one of the most enviable locations in a district that is situated in very the heart of Metro Manila. The market district of Quiapo, also known as ‘The Old Downtown of Manila’ has a relaxed, laid back atmosphere, making this quarter perfect for students.  The historical baroque style Quiapo Church, or the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene, is at the heart of this district, in front of Plaza Miranda the town square.
