For those who think old structures have charm, you could only think of one place here in Manila – Intramuros. Intramuros is a Spanish term meaning “within the walls”. Hail to the walls that witnessed so much of our national history and stood still for better and for worse. Built, shattered, and rebuilt for the good and the bad times. The walls that won’t come down without a fight. And does it remind you so much of your emotional walls? You love that metaphor, eh. But no, it isn’t about emotional  walls today, hello?

And we’ll never be royals (royals!) , but it’s always nice to walk that Royal Gate or Puerta Real. This gate was an exclusive entrance of the Governor Generals way back 1663.

Please notice the lilies along the walk. They’re worth your attention.

Inside the Royal Gate may be a replica of its old self but would never fail to give you the feel of the Philippines during the 17th Century. And by no reason, this delights you so much.

I like how the green moss contrasted the floor. Ok, I love it. It’s like the clumps of moss are perfect, beautiful right there. Aren’t they?

How you love it when you  look on the right you see a touch of Romanesque and there on your left you see Neoclassical style. Like you’re in the same place at different centuries! Oh, Intramuros.

Simplicity and symmetry reigns in the architecture of Ayuntamiento de Manila building.

Your look when you’re taking classicism seriously.

You pose like you can wait forever on someone’s doorway. As long as the door is huge and wooden carved.

The street art depicts the old Filipino way of wooing a woman. And your face every time you see a sweet couple around, lol.

When everything is evolving here in the metro, Travelberries hope continuous effort would be done to maintain and revive the architecture of  Intramuros. All hearts to you, Walled City! ❤️
