I was attracted to see the remaining walls of Aduana simply because it looked so picturesque. It's a pity there is not more information about the building and it's history. Great for a quick "drive by" photo, but not much else to do.

As a surveyor I am fascinated by buildings . Whist derelict it is beautiful and I understand the exterior is preserved due to its importance . It's a shame more can't be done to allow access but it looks to be in a perilous state

Aduana is one among several streets in the walled city of Intramuros. It is teeming with history and great architecture. Nice walking adventure.

No doubt this historic building could have a significant historical value but for tourists who do not have any information about this, it may seem like an ordinary building in decay. Located within Intramuros along the main Aduana Street just a few steps from the...More

It’s just a road, perfectly fine because it was easily to locate. You will see a taxi or kalesa parking in here. So if you are looking a taxi this is the place where you can go because most of the transportation is in here.
