Intramuros, Manila

World heritage site · Neighborhood · Historic Walking Area
One of capital's oldest districts, Intramuros offers a glimpse into the nation's history and the period when the Spanish Empire governed and influenced the realm. Encircled by heavily damaged defensive walls, the area was once identified as "on the verge" of irreparable loss due to lack of maintenance and constant danger of natural and man-made disasters. The historical district faced almost complete destruction, especially during World War II, but several notable monuments still stand, including a few centuries-old churches. Put Intramuros and other Manila attractions into our Manila trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
