     For longer years staying here in Metro Manila it was my first time visited Intramuros, I only seen in pictures and television. Where our national hero got in jail in Fort Santiago inside the Intramuros before he execute by firing squad in Luneta. Fortunately I saw the post one of my friend on facebook he will visit the tourist destination in Manila, suddenly I realized that I never visit the main tourist destination as traveler I must visit too because of its important part to our history, what I do was I messaged Jun also a travel blogger that I will join with him.

     I was amazed when I was inside the walled city lots of structures built, the old Churches, the old buildings and also the defense structures. To know more the history of Intramuros visit this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intramuros.

I had been there in San Agustin Church I can say that church is amazing, one of the oldest church in Manila and the most target of weddings. I mentioned San Agustin Church on my article about Churches in Manila for Wedding
