The Archdiocesan Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, also known as Minglanilla Church, is a Gothic Marian church in Minglanilla, Cebu, Philippines. The parish was established on October 30, 1857, and the church was built from 1880 to 1886. It was proclaimed an archdiocesan shrine by Cebu Archbishop Ricardo Cardinal Vidal on August 23, 2007.[2]

Minglanilla Church features Gothic elements, including a vaulted portico with Ionic columns, compound columns by the entrance, and an arched door with a seal keystone. The facade is defined by pilasters, gabled capitals, and decorative cornices, contributing to the church's overall sharp-angled design. Belfries on each side rise above the pediment, featuring decorative pilasters, arches, and balustrades. The facade extensions include gabled structures with stained glass windows and quatrefoil openings.[2]
