Intramuros, Manila

The 64-hectare stone citadel, built by the Spaniards in 1571, has withstood wars and numerous colonial aggressors.


Intramuros is the oldest district in Manila…

Fort Santiagio is also called the “walled city” or Intramuros – Intra : within; Muros: walls

The districts outside the wall were called “extramuros”

Americans, Japanese, and others who tried to conquer the country used Intramuros as their bases where they torture Filipinos
