“Interesting place and history”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Must see and hear the history of this fort. We walked the walls, the feel and wear from thousands of footsteps before you.

“piece of history”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Entering inside the high walls does not seem to be more in Manila, but in a ancient city. Very nice stroll and think about what it was like in the past. I wish there were more places to visit in the Philippines like that. Must visit.

“History in the middle of the big city”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This is a great place for a first timer to learn about the history of the struggles of Philippine freedom. Lots of ruins from the fort and the old dungeons. Be aware of the tour guides who afront you as you first arrive or at least be wary enough to barter them down to a price you are comfortable with.

This place has ghostly feel, like eerie.. Has lot great history there also about liberation and survival. Check out the black waters of the river and the underground cells...

“How far your P100 can go?”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We spent our 4 hours activity in Intramuros. It was fun ! Being there, brought the nostalgic feeling of how Filipinos had lived and fight against Spaniards for our country.
