A Glimpse of Intramuros, Feb 2012

Intramuros (Latin: within the walls) is the historic centre and oldest district of Manila, the capital city of the Philippines.

Also known as the Ciudad Murada (Walled City) because of its most famous feature: a nearly three-mile-long circuit of massive stone walls and fortifications that almost completely surrounds the entire district.

It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t able to go to Subic for the Hot Air Balloon Festival. So I visited Intramuros instead for a stroll after almost 8 years. I’m not a photographer, but I thought a black and white version of the photos I took will give it a more historical touch.

Will re-visit Fort Santiago soon. For now, here’s a glimpse of Intramuros.

  1. Nice photos, Rica!!! 🙂

    I’ll be going back to Intramuros probably next month to try out a couple of restaurants for the blog. Nakaka-miss din ang Intramuros ha. It’s been 3 years na din. 🙂
