Old Walled City

A few weeks ago one of my new colleagues and I took our children to visit Intramuros, the walled city in the oldest part Manila.  We walked around awhile, looked at Fort Santiago and then took a horse-drawn carriage ride around the grounds.  The first thing I thought was that the area looked so much like Puerto Rico. Makes sense with the Spanish influence, I suppose.

After a small snack and water break we walked over to see San Agustin church, a Roman Catholic church built in 1607.  It is supposedly the oldest building in the Philippines.  It’s a beautiful structure and is still used for services to this day. The whole area is really quaint and beautiful and would be a nice place to come back again and spend some time when you aren’t with four children under 7!  🙂
