The actual area is only interesting as a historical site, but the tour (Celedron? I forget his name, but its easy to find) is worth it. He is dramatic, a bit over the top, but in two hours you get more relevant history and entertainment than anywhere else. Go!

Definitely not to miss when in Manila. Take one of the 'calesas' for a more leisurely view of the Spanish era Manila. Lots of interesting individual old structures, from churches, to museums, to old houses turned restaurants, all within the wall. Take time to enjoy each one.

Relieve the Spanish Era when you take a stroll at this Walled City. This was the seat of government before when the Philippines was a component realm of the Spanish Empire. A spacious borough of wide streets, leafy plazas and lovely colonial houses, the old walled city of Intramuros was the centrepiece of Spanish Manila. Explore it before 10 a.m.,... More

Intramuros seems to be the number tourist area in Manila, dating back to Spanish times. It's on the port side and you pay P75 to get in (forget about the touts selling guided tours, hats, buggy rides etc). It's quite a serene place and easy to get around. There are story boards throughout so you can read about the history... More

Can't resist to visit Fort Santiago together with my college friends/classmates from Philippine Normal University class of 1975 (PNC). Together we reminisced our college days and recalled the history of our famous hero J.P. Rizal. It was a very fine sunny and warm, and humid day.

The great place to visit if you are visiting Manila. There are ancient churches, museums and many other places to see. There are people who is willing to take you around by horse carts and kind of taxis, but it is not necessary. Walking is the best option to have a better experience without any rush.

I just love this place... Im sorry guys. I love old things and history that is why I am so mesmerized by this place. This part of Manila has endured the test of time and it still standing there proud and tall. The area is well preserved. Though minor things such as street "families" are visible in the area. I...

Intramuros has much historical significance for Manila as it was one time the centre of Manila. one can see the old buildings and read the signs as you walk along and read the signs. Tricycle drivers will try to gain your attention with cards they have of pictures of places they offer to take you too , for a price... More
