If you like history, old monument, colonial building you definitely should visit this fort. A very huge 16 century fort.

I love the old vibe of Intramuros! Walking tours are great. A few buildings are under construction. Manila should work on keeping the place more touristy and walkable. Local houses should be renovated to get the old Manila vibe.

Intramuros is a historic site & well-maintained. It also has a shrine & museum for Rizal, a Phillppines independence hero. It's a nice open area with gardens & even a golf course!

This is a great place to visit if you are a fan of history, architecture or just like churches. If you decide to tour this place on your own, you are going to get inundated with predatory tour guides that will NOT leave you alone until you enter the church, and will wait for you outside, however. This did detract... More

I've heard a few people disparage this place saying it doesn't compare too Old towns in Europe. Probably a fair statement, but I still think its an interesting cheap attraction. There are enough attractions to keep you occupied for many hours. My tip would be too hire a bicycle tour operator for around 350 pesos. If you get an informative... More

Intramuros is a must see for travellers to Manila. Heaped in history, it is a step into the past and worlds away from the bustling modern capital. Whether visiting it on foot, in a bicycle taxi, in a horse drawn carriage or in a car, it is the greater part of a day well spent. Fort ruins, museums, churches and... More

When it comes to history in Manila it seems there is more to read about than to see. But you do indulge yourself into the history of Philippine when visiting Intramuros as the colonial atmosphere is all around. Still manage your expectations as too how much of the historical part of Manila made it through the century as most of... More
