  • Super pretty, looks like a miniature set from Game of Thrones. Pity it's surrounded by stores and restaurants, but that's Intramuros for you.
  • Entering the place is like going through a time machine back to the spanish occupation of the Philippines. The atmosphere, the houses and the architecture is beautiful.
  • So beautiful. Cute cafe. Nice restaurant. Well laid out reproduction house and museum that gives a great feel for old colonial times. All set in cute little alleyways and through archways and tiny courtyards.
  • Enjoy the music, dance and their buffet food. Reservations is recommended.
  • It is beautiful place for capture the photo. I like it very much.
