Intramuros (Manila)

While in Manila Cousin Rita took us on a site seeing tour. Our first stop was Manila Cathedral at Intramuros (the Walled City). Originally built in the 1500’s it has been rebuilt eight times, the current incarnation in 1958, after American bombs destroyed the previous cathedral in the Battle for Liberation during WWII. I was more interested in taking pictures of the plaza surrounding the church so while Fe and company went inside I wandered around looking for interesting subjects.

Statue of Carlos IV, building behind is the Palacio Del Gobermador. Imelda Marcos had her personal offices here. Currently houses the Commission on Elections (COMELEC)
