Hey there! Are you ready to go on a beautiful escape with me this time? If yes, then prepare yourself for a one great kind of adventure!
Life is so much better if you’ll just try to look at it in different angles. May it be north, south, east or west, life offers you so much to explore and experience. Well, luckily today, I’ll be taking you on a beautiful escape in Intramuros.
Intramuros, or the ‘Walled City’, is one of the oldest districts of Manila, built on the south bank of the Pasig River around 1571. It was built by the Spaniards – more specifically by Miguel Lopez de Legaspi – and is bound on all sides by moats and thick, high walls, with some over 6 metres high.
Aside from it’s rich historical and cultural highlights, Intramuros is a place where you can experience how it feels like to travel using a time machine. It shows you a lot of things to reminisce including events that in one way or another made an impact to who we are today.
So if I were you, go and visit Intramuros - a place that will make you feel good and deeply proud that you are a Filipino. ⛪️🍃
