Ayala Avenue

Ayala Avenue is one of Metro Manila's main highways, passing through the center of the Makati Central Business District. Ayala Avenue is known as the "Wall Street of the Philippines" because of the many businesses that surround it.

It also connects Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) and Metropolitan Avenue. Circumferential Road 3 is formed by a portion of Ayala Avenue between Metropolitan Avenue and Gil Puyat Avenue.


The section of Ayala Avenue between V.A. Rufino Street and Makati Avenue was once the primary runway of the Nielson Airport, which was one of the earliest airports established in Luzon. The airport was demolished on December 10, 1941, during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, and it reopened after World War II ended in 1947. The airport closed in 1948, and the permanent facilities were given to the landowner, Ayala y Compaa. The runways were then repurposed as highways.

It later added new segments towards Highway 54 (now EDSA), Kamagong Street in San Antonio Village, and, eventually, the end of South Avenue at Metropolitan Avenue. When the Manila Metro Rail Transit System was built, a flyover for left turns into EDSA going to Monumento was added.


How to get there
