Historic Walled City of Intramuros
Old-world Intramuros is home to Spanish-era landmarks like Fort Santiago, with a large stone gate and a shrine to national hero José Rizal. The ornate Manila Cathedral houses bronze carvings and stained glass windows, while the San Agustin Church museum has religious artwork and statues. Spanish colonial furniture and art fill Casa Manila museum, and horse-drawn carriages (kalesa) ply the area’s cobblestone streets.
Fort Santiago is a 16th-century citadel, a national landmark and a shrine to the hard-won freedom of the Philippines. It’s been a cornerstone of the country’s history, seeing the defeat of Rajah Sulayman the Spaniards, the invasion of the Chinese led by Limahong, and the first raising of the US flag that declared the beginning of American rule. The solid stone structure has an Italian-Spanish architectural style. Miguel Lopez de Legaspi built the fort for the newly established Manila City and named it after Spain's patron saint – St. James the Great. It’s also known as Fuerza de Santiago in Spanish or Moog ng Santiago in Tagalog.

It is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, a title for the Blessed Virgin Mary, the principal patroness of the country. The cathedral serves as the episcopal see of the Archbishop of Manila.

The cathedral was damaged and destroyed several times since the original structure was built in 1581 while the eighth and current structure of the cathedral was completed in 1958.
