This place TOTALLY Takes you out of the Busy Hectic-ness of Manila and transports you to an old 18th Century feel of Spain. There is plenty to do and see - Dont miss this area if you are in Manila. MUST See/DO!!!!!

I would have never found this place if my local friend hadn't told me about it. The huge walls surround a community with a high school and university.

Cobbled spanish streets and horse drawn carts within a walled city... in Asia! Intramuros is charmingly different to the old cities of the rest of SE Asia and the better for it. Beautiful churches and colonial buildings are juxtaposed with amazing street art and history...More

This is a delightful walk through the older part of the city with many historical elements. It is well worth the time to have a period of relaxation, particularly as Manila is in the process of renovation and is somewhat chaotic.

Hi, Intramuros would be a fairly easy walk from the cruise ship docks. It might take about 30 minutes. The easiest route might be to walk to the main cathedral and fort area. They are on the edge of the Intramuros.
