Touring Intramuros is an exercise in imagination. A bit of nostalgia and romance helps because, despite efforts to restore Intramuros, the old city is a mere skeleton of its once opulent self. First hit by Japanese bombs on 26 and 27 December 1941, the city suffered damage on its riverside flank.

Why Intramuros Walking Tour is special ?

Touring Intramuros is an exercise in imagination. A bit of nostalgia and romance helps because, despite efforts to restore Intramuros, the old city is a mere skeleton of its once opulent self. First hit by Japanese bombs on 26 and 27 December 1941, the city suffered damage on its riverside flank. Among the casualties of this bombardment was the Neogothic church of Santo Domingo. But the city remained very much intact until February 1945 when in the space of about two weeks 300 years of history were obliterated by fires and bombs, triggered by retreating Japanese troops, and fierce bombardment and mortar fire by Americans.

Manila has a rich cultural, political and economic history which I gather is widely unknown worldwide. The walking tour goes a long way in filling that void.

I've always lived my life here in Manila. And one of the exciting places to visit is the Intramuros. It's actually a step back in time during the Spanish regime here in the Phils. If you're fond of histories this place is a must see.

I had not planned on taking the tour but randomly bumped into Carlos at Intramuros and he let me join. It ended up being well worth my time as he provided a very informative but also hilarious tour of Manila.
