One of capital's oldest districts, Intramuros offers a glimpse into the nation's history and the period when the Spanish Empire governed and influenced the realm. Encircled by heavily damaged defensive walls, the area was once identified as "on the verge" of irreparable loss due to lack of maintenance and constant danger of natural and man-made disasters. The historical district faced almost complete destruction, especially during World War II, but several notable monuments still stand, including a few centuries-old churches.

ふたりでイントラムロスに行ったときに、「ふたりで1000ペソで観光ガイドをしてあげる」とその場にいた現地人から話があったのでガイドをお願いしました。 ガイド自体は丁寧で、いろんな写真を撮ってもらったりフィリピンの歴史を学べたりすばらしいものでした。 2時間のガイドのあとに、「1時間で1000ペソだから2000ペソね」と言われました。ガイドが2時間だとは言っていませんでしたし完全にぼったくりでした。... more »When we went to Intramuros, we asked for a guide because there was a story from the local people who were there, "we'll give you a tour guide at 1000 pesos." The guide itself was polite, had a lot of pictures taken, and it was wonderful to learn the history of the Philippines. After the two-hour guide, he said, "It's 1,000 pesos in an hour, so 2,000 pesos." I didn't say the guide was two hours, and it was completely a rip-off. Immediately call the car in the vehicle dispatch app, I kept saying NO even if it was said to pay, give up over there and receive 1000 pesos we went home. We were lucky, but around Intramuros itself at night it was a very bad place and the hotel staff told us that we might have been harmed. I made it to star 4 because it is a recommended place for sightseeing with a personal or official tour guide in daytime.
Nice to visit because you can see how it was beautifully preserved. You can learn a lot for it has many spots with historical contributions in Philippines. more »
