Intramuros (Latin, “within the walls”) is the oldest district and historic core of the City of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Also called the Walled City, the original citadel of Manila was the seat of government when the Philippines were acomponent realm of the Spanish Empire. Districts beyond the walls were referred as the extramuros of Manila, meaning “outside the walls”.

In an effort to get to know my country more, I always try to visit historical places (within Metro Manila or in the provinces alike). I have never been to Luneta before. In fact, I was still quite confused which is Luneta and which is Rizal Park. As it turns out, they are actually one and the same. D’oh!

Join me as I show you some bits and pieces of this national landmark.
