Owner description: Intramuros, "The Walled City," is the oldest district in Manila. This is what remains of the fortified city, which was the seat of power during Spanish Colonial times (1521-1898).

I like newest and the coolest way of seeing in Intramuros. Because it uses the e-chariots wherein it only shows that no matter how old the historical place is it can adapt to modern society applicable & can be enjoyed by any age.. I just strongly recommend that discounts should be given to students who want and wish to experience travelling in Intramuros via the e-chariots.

There is really not a lot to see in Manila apart from Shopping Malls after Shopping Malls. As we like some culture on our trips we headed to Intramuros, hoping to learn a little about the history of Manila. For Manila it is probably quite a historical place, but compared to many other countries around the world it is not really special. If you do not have much time in Manila don't bother with Intramuros - you have not missed anything

Nice Place to Visit with Guided Tours as an Option, a Historic Site in the Middle of a Bustling Metropolis ...

it is amazing how they are able to preserve this place and i hope they continue to preserve it in the midst of all the development in the city of manila. i visited the place twice with my husband. the first time, we went to see the cathedral, it was magnificently huge. we also went to see casa manila which is basically an old spanish style house full of antiques - it was grand. the second time we went, we saw the fort santiago with the rizal museum. it can be cold and eerie, maybe because it was in the afternoon. but it does have an effect, maybe that was how rizal felt during those times. then, we also went to see san agustin church which also has antique statues. i loved the cobble stones and even the guards dressed as during the spanish era.

A place where you get to see bits and pieces of the Spanish influence in the Philippines. Intramuros means walled city, it was created by Spaniards to protect the city from invasion.

This is where you can find the famous Manila Cathedral, Fort Santiago and (UNESCO) San Agustin Church. A walking distance from SM Manila/ Manila City Hall.


For tourists who would like to commute going to Intramuros, you can take the MRT/LRT. This, however, will require you to walk about 500m.

Ride an MRT (south bound) and get off at the last station (Taft) where it connects to LRT. From MRT Taft, take the exit to your right and walk towards the LRT station. From there, you can ride another train and get off at Central Terminal Station (remember that there are six stops before reaching Central Terminal).

From the Central Terminal, you can walk towards a building with huge clock tower (that is Manila City Hall, btw). When you reached Manila City Hall, turn right and walk towards Padre Burgos St-- the main road (if you see a wide road with lots of jeepneys, you are in the right track).

From Padre Burgos St, you can walk towards the underpass to get to the other side of the street. After that, you can walk towards Victoria St where Intramuros entrance is located.
