Intramuros Manila


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have in my veins the passion and a sense of liking towards Philippine heritage that I enjoy visiting places which has a historical background. I have been eying for an old mansions, ancestral houses or even towns having an intact and well-preserved historical landmarks. Whenever I plan to have a leisurely visit in places like these I always have my camera with me to photograph every scene that loom before my eyes.

The day I started my blog, I have thought of turning it into a travel blog where in I’ll be pointing up post in relation to historical places around the Philippines but that may require a handful of effort, time and money. My dream for my blog doesn’t end with that insufficiency; still I would pursue it as time progresses.

Yesterday, I have had the chance to visit Intramuros Manila together with my friend and avid reader   Zane.We traveled the walled city riding the legendary Kalesa and we were dumbfounded while gazing on every ancestral edifice. The mood of the place shifted us back in time causing us to feel as if we’re in Spanish colonial period. Mamang Kutchero also has an intelligent share of explaining the details of stuff we see around the vicinity.

Though it rained heavily before we get there, our enthusiasm to witness the place never faded. Thanks to the sun, still it smiles upon us after that rain…

    hi John, lovely shots as usual! to be honest,i hate looking at these pics on a sunday afternoon, nakaka-homesick. nothing beats scenes from good old manila. keep em coming.

  10. Very nice compilation of pictures of Intramuros and Fort Santiago!. I love visiting these place as it transports me back in time. There is still a video on you tube that shows Intramuros and other old places in Manila like Escolta in the 1920’s. I wonder if you had a chance to see it already.

    What a nice way to spend a vacation. I am really interested on how the intramuros looks like, since now we are discussing Spanish colonial era in our Philippine History. Its too bad though I have to cross the seas just to see it.

    PS: How did you make the picture slideslow? It looks good.

  12. Hi Ben,
    I think it wouldn’t be a practical trip if you’re going to travel by sea just to visit Intramuros.I suggest If you’re going to visit here then savor your time and see other places here in Manila para sulit..

    ’bout the pic slideshow, its easy..
    If you have many pics to upload, I think it would be better to use the slide show.You can upload multiple photos then save all of them.On the bottom side,you can see 2 choices there.1) photo gallery and 2) the slideshow .just choose slideshow and click the preview button on the upper right side..If it works you can go back and save your work..
    hehehe hope nagets mo xa..Medyo magulo .=)
