Jones Bridge | Things to do in City of Manila-Metro Manila

Jones Bridge Jones Bridge Jones Bridge
Dubbed as the ‘Queen of Bridges’, Jones Bridge in Manila is one of the oldest in the Metro.  It was commissioned in 1919 by the Manila city government. Like most of Manila, the bridge was part of the structures that were totaled by World War II and was reconstructed in 1946 under the American Colonial Period. It now is one of the most historical bridges in the country, and one of the most important ones too, as it connects the heritage sites of Intramuros and Binondo. With the restoration of the bridge conducted in 2019, more and more people are appreciating the beauty and history of the William A. Jones Memorial Bridge.
