Very interesting to learn more about the foreign powers and their treatment of the Filipino people. Found the information about Dr Rizal most interesting and the way he was treated by those in power at that time, not the least of which was forcing Filipino people to shot him by placing Spanish soldiers behind them to kill them if they...

We visited Intramuros as part of a tour and even though we only spent a short time here is was well worth it, Built by the Spanish it is the oldest part of the city. Fort Santiago and San Agustin Church, both originally built in 1571, are must see locations. Easy and safe to walk round. We could easily spend... More

The beauty of this area is simply walking around. Looking over the vast developments of Manila from the centuries old wall riddled with bullet holes is something special. Read up on some of the history before or get a tour guide to really appreciate Intramuros!

We embarked on the Carlos Celdran walking tour of Intramuros and found him to be very entertaining and packed his tour with interesting information on the history of Manila. He does get a bit over passionate at times but then recognises it and changes the subject to make you laugh again. There is no need to book, just turn up... More

This relatively small neighbourhood is really the tourist heart of Manila. It's contained within fortress walls, that surround the entire district. The walls are worth exploring and most of them can be climbed to see great views. Inside the area are restaurants, shops and hotels alongside the churches and chapels. It's quite lively and there's a lot to see and... More

Surely you'll get confused looking on the Infrastracture of this place. It's not in Spain, it's Intramuros. There are numbers of cathedral inside, a golf course, universities, government offices, restaurants, "Kalesa" a kind of transportation that you can ride to roam around The Wall City. On your visit, a must try eatery on Walls ~ In front of Mapua and... More

If you're on the trip and visiting Manila, you don't want to visit the common distircts, but there isn't much else to visit, Intramuros is a bit crowded, but it's certainly worth visiting, fort Santiago is pretty small compared to many other fortification buildings, but it's still impressive enough.
