Intramuros

Intramuros, the old capital of Manila, was built in 1571 and remains a monumental relic of the Philippines’ Spanish period.

With crumbling walls that have survived for more than four hundred years, Intramuros has centuries-old walls, bulwarks, and plazas.

As a tourist destination, Intramuros both educates and entertains.

Fort Santiago

Fort Santiago is one of the oldest fortifications of Intramuros. Work started on the fort in 1571 and was completed nearly 150 years later by Filipino forced labour.

The fort is also known as the "Shrine of Freedom", in memory of the heroic Filipinos imprisoned and killed here during the Spanish and Japanese eras. The site is now a park and promenade housing a resident theatre company.

The palace tour focuses on all former Presidents of the Philippines and the memorabilia associated with their respective periods of leadership.

Corregidor

Corregidor is a small island of 5 sq km where great historic events took place. Its advantageous location made it a centre of great military importance, especially during the Second World War.
