  • This beautiful building stands near Manila Cathedral. I had no time to visit inside, but even from the outside you can admire this construction.  more »
  • Exploring Manila, Metro Manila area most security is uncertain. Surrounded with fortress, the subsistence level comfortable feel. I thought, in a splendid building and the Church also may have a different presence, and preserved and will force to put in the environment around. Manila separated development area and the historical district is a big difference between I like too.

  • Center of Spanish government during Spanish colonial era. It was the malacañang in that era. And today it is the head office of comelec.
  • A number of government offices are currently housed in Palacio del Gobernador. For those interested in registering as a voter or running for public office, the Commission on Elections has an office here. Those paying their housing loans can transact with PAGIBIG, and the ones who need an ATM machine will find several inside Landbank Intramuros. The building is lighted at night, much like the nearby Manila Cathedral. Parking space is easier to find between the hours of 6 in the evening to 7 in the morning, though, so you might want to consider commuting. There is a jeepney stop just across Soriano Avenue, in front of the Intramuros Fire Station.
  • The seat of government during the Spanish colonial period.
  • It is where our main office is 😀
