if you're looking for history, then this is the place for you. It's basically "Old Manila" in a nutshell where you can find the Spanish influence in the ruins of the Fort, the San Agustin Church, and even outside the walls when you stroll along the streets. There's old architecture, restaurants that offer local cuisine, and even kalesa (carriage) rides.... More

Old buildings are nice, quite and clean area compared to the rest of the city. However at night almost nobody on the street, almost scary.

Intramuros is old town in Old Manila, which was open since Spanish invaded PHilippines from 16th century. The area included a lot of interesting highlight like St Augustin Church, Manila Cathedral, Fort Santiago as well as very real daily life of Philippino in small streets. I like this area when visit Manila

Historical buildings are worth the visit. Antique store on the south end has 4 floors and lots of historic art, tribal pieces, handmade items and souvenirs. San Augustin church is worth a visit as well as the oldest church in the Philippines. Traffic can be pretty bad within the walls.

A clean and tidy part of Manila steeped in history and with beautiful colonial buildings and cobbled streets. It is a shame that they do not restrict the traffic as this is causing untold pollution and damage to these heritage buildings. very easy to get lost as it appears to work on a grid system but then doesnt .. quite...

Great little piece of history right near the Softel. Old shops, stores, churches, places to see. Disliked the usual tourist beggars aggressively selling crap.

Go to Intramuros in the afternoon and stay there until sunset. This is probably the best time because you will see all the pupils and students at the streets - very colourful. PM is also good to bargain prices for tours with the horse carts.

i enjoy to know more about PHilippine history and especially as we all know this country has a lots of stories to tell. Intramural is just one of the story but is showing how long the suffering of a nation can last... The place itself is small in our eyes of today used to see huge buildings. But it tells... More
