It is my first time exploring the walled city last May. I was excited for our tour that I forgot to read beforehand. Though I know a bunch of things about it, Intramuros is the historic core of Manila, it is a latin word which literally means “within the walls”. Before, everything inside the walls is considered as Manila, and everything outside is considered a province.
We didn’t have the chance to actually explore outside Fort Santiago because we took a grab all the way there and we had no time to check out the Casa Manila nor take a calesa. But it was still as fun, and there will always be a next time. I will come back, for sure.
Well, that is all for our mini trip inside Fort Santiago. Looking forward to visit it the second time!!
