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).
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We did a short walk around Intramuros looking at the old wall and buildings that once made up 17th century Manila. Most of it was destroyed during WWII, but you can certainly get a feel for the beauty that was once Manila. The church is worth going into, especially to see the pictures of what it was, what happened during the war, and see what the reconstruction is.

Historical, religious, places to eat; easy to walk around although a little confusing direction-wise. You can always fall back on various forms of transport which are readily available. Well worth a visit!

Probably not the most stunning historic city centre in the world be worth a visit if you are sightseeing in Manila

One or two decent spots to eat and drink in the area

This was OK for me but even more interesting for Filipinos in sure. A guide would have been helpful to better understand the place.

Considered as Old Manila because of its consistency in keeping the area and restoration of history and culture from Old churches and rebuilding old style commercial store and buildings.
