Manila Intramuros Half-Day Shared Walking Tour with Guide
Discover the Walled City of Intramuros in Manila on this half-day shared walking tour. If you love history, this tour will take you to one of the most significant locations in the Philippine capital. This tour is inclusive of a DOT-accredited tour guide, entrance fees, and a disposable raincoat (if it rains).
You'll meet your tour guide at the Fort Santiago entrance gate. One of Metro Manila's most significant historical landmarks is Fort Santiago. Fort Santiago, constructed by the Spanish conquest Miguel López de Legazpi in 1571, functioned as a protective bastion for Manila, which had just been founded at the time.
During your tour, you will go on a scenic walk around the fort, which boasts impressive architecture and extensive military history. You’ll check out Plaza Moriones, a historic public square; Reducto de San Francisco Javier, part of the seaside defense in Intramuros; The American Barracks, an old Spanish barracks used before by the American forces; and the Fort Santiago Gate, which has an interesting history behind its ruins.
You’ll also visit Plaza De Armas, another public square in Intramuros; Rajah Sulayman Theater and Brick Barracks, the other military barracks in Intramuros; The Dungeon, used as prison cells during World War II; White Cross, built for the victims of World War II; and Medya Naranja, a historical marker in Intramuros.
You'll head next to Palacio Del Governador General and Ayuntamiento de Manila, two government buildings in Intramuros. After visiting the two historic locations, you’ll go next to Manila Cathedral. This church, also referred to as the Manila Metropolitan Cathedral-Basilica, hosted papal masses for Pope Francis in 2015, Blessed Paul VI in 1970, and St. John Paul II in 1981.
Postigo del Palacio, an old alleyway in Intramuros, is your next destination. You will visit Memorare-Manila 1945 Monument afterward, which was built in memory of the innocent civilians who were killed during the Battle of Manila.
Your last stop is Casa Manila, a museum that looks like a house in the 19th century. The two-story museum features artwork, Spanish-era furnishings, dinnerware, and books that portray colonial life.
