The Old City of Manila, Philippines


Valid till Oct 31 2020
Manila is the capital city of the Philippines, located on the western edge of Luzon, facing Manila Bay. In the XIII century it was part of the Bruneian Empire ruled by Muslim Rajahs and Sultans who made the city as fortified settlement and trading quarter. In XVI century, Ferdinand Magellan, a Portoguese explorer, organised an expedition leading to East Indies. In 1521 he discovered the Philippines. Manila, however, was declared as a Spanish territory only fifty years after him, when Miguel López de Legazpi established a city council known as Intramuros.

This is the best historical part to be visited in Manila. Don't miss the chance to visit it, discover Fort Santiago and San Agustin Church seeking through the alleys of "Intramuros". Proceed to Paco and Rizal Park, out of the "Walled City". Explore the CCP Complex admiring the Coconut Palace, whole made by coconut lumber; Tanghalan Balagtas, Philippine Int'l Convention Center, Manila Film Center, and the citadels of entertainment.
