Intramuros is a walled city that dates back to Spanish times. Located in Intramuros is the Manila Cathedral, where many high profile Filipinos get married. You can catch a horse-drawn carriage for a tourists tour of Intramuros or you can take a walking tour. The horse-drwan tour will avoid the eyesores that are the squatters areas located inside Intramuros, and... More

Stopped by here as part of a intramuros tricycle tour. Did not go into the museum, but did go into the church. It's worth the stop.

This museum feels as if a lot of thought and care has gone into it. It's also has much better lighting than many other museums I have visited in SE Asia. If you have any interest in history you're sure to find something to interest you here.

The museum is undergoing a major refurbishment, but even in its yet unfinished state, it is already worth a visit.

TA, rather confusingly, list three attractions in Intramuros as San Agustin Church, San Agustin Monastery, and San Agustin Museum. The vast majority of tourists probably see all three simultaneous. The church is still a working church, but unless you come for mass on Sunday, the doors to the church will be closed. The former monastery is now a museum, and... More

It dumbfounds me there were no crowds here with all of the thingsto see. Many 100+ year old paintings and other artifacts that date back centuries. Well worth a visit to see some of this history.

The museum is on two levels surrounding an open courtyard, which is part of the church itself. The architecture alone, with its stone walls and stairs, is enough to evoke a sense of time travel. Artifacts, paintings, and sculptures all have religious themes and are generally from the Spanish colonial period, dating from the 16th century. Highlight for me was... More

It is on a UNESCO's list of world heritage Spanish baroque churches of the Philippines, it is the oldest church in the country, the only large structure to have survived the orgy of destruction at the end of the second world war when most of colonial Manila was bombarded, and it is just stunning. It does not have a golden... More
