About Intramuros, Manila
Intramuros or the ‘city within walls’ is the oldest district in Manila and by far the most fascinating one too. It is full of historic buildings and local heritage. There are defensive walls surrounding Intramunos that were built to protect it from any invasion. Within these protective walls throve a city full of palaces, churches, convents, monasteries and schools in the late 1700s. Intramunos still has a Spanish feel to it, considering it was under Spainish rule till 1898. Even though the war of 1945 destroyed the better part of this district, the spirit of Intramunos still remains.
