  • Nice for a visit for first time visitor to Manila as a historical site.My first visit to Manila Philippines 
  • This attractive building sits on a busy corner in the Intramuros (walled city) in Manila. It has exhibitions detailing colonial Spanish life in the city. 
  • 这建筑本身就是一个博物馆,博物馆不是很大。里面多数是陈列着一些历史壁画,看的出一百年前的菲律宾的精英社会对他们国家多方面的贡献,是了解菲律宾历史的一个好地方。

  • 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.
