Intramuros was built and finished in 1571 and proclaimed as the new capital of the Spanish Colony in the Philippines during the said year. Opposite the Manila bay and alongside with the Pasig River, the fortress is one of the major strategic military base of the Spaniard.
400 years and counting, Intramuros signifies history, religion, politics, social status, and the center of diversified culture and tradition. The facade of the walled city, the churches and some old structures are the remaining reminders to us that once upon a time Intramuros was the center of influence and power all over our nation.
