Wander with me around the walled city of Intramuros on a theatrical ride through the years 1571 until 1945. You’ll learn about Manila’s complex history as we laze under trees, snack on candy, and marvel at some of the oldest heritage structures in the Philippine archipelago. We’ll start our journey at the Fort Santiago by the Pasig River. We’ll see Plaza Moriones, the Manila Cathedral, the Plaza Roma and end our journey in front of the UNESCO world heritage site of San Agustin Church.There will be illusions. There will be candy. There will be buggy rides and theatre. We’ll talk about Filipino society, politics, history, art, religion, along with other topics that might make you laugh, cry. or possibly take offence. It’s performance art in the guise of a “walking tour”.

Nearby attractions

Fort Santiago in Intramuros
Attraction
0.07 km away

Fort Santiago was the governmental seat of power in Intramuros during the Spanish period. Hence, the most important details of history are etched in its structures—its dungeons, death chambers, prison cells, and Spanish offices. The highlight of the Fort Santiago, however, is the intellectual giant and martyr, Dr. Jose Rizal, whose novels and public execution sparked a revolution and ended the 333 years of Spanish regime. Rizal belonged to the Ilustrado, a group of freethinking Filipinos who studied in Europe and were exposed to Western ideas. Seeing the Philippines in the clutch of Spain in the late 1800s, Rizal wrote and self-published two definitive novels, the Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, exposing the corruption of Spain over the native Filipinos. More than learning about Intramuros, the Fort Santiago, and Dr. Jose Rizal, visiting this place is a journey towards unlocking the gifts of freedom.

Bahay Tsinoy
Attraction
0.62 km away

The Bahay Tsinoy is a testament to the painful struggle of the Chinese Filipinos in the Philippines. Like the struggles of the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in strange lands, the overseas Chinese workers (OCWs) here have turned toward each other and helped each other out to survive. The museum chronicles this struggle in life-like wax figures in the realistic setting of the Parian, now Chinatown, in Binondo. Other than the detailed recreation of the Chinese trade, the museum has other interesting galleries, including the Bahay na Bato, the typical Chinese settlement in Manila; the Ching Ban Lee Ceramics Gallery, the Martyrs Hall, Batang Tiaong, and the gallery featuring prominent Chinese Filipinos who aided in nation building and in the revolt against the Spaniards. The museum also has a library containing Chinese Filipino literature, history books, and others.

Casa Manila Museum
Attraction
0.75 km away

Casa Manila Museum portrays the lifestyle of the educated and moneyed class during the 17th and 18th century. While the people who had once lived in such a house are gone, there remains the things they have left behind- the products of their extravagance and the relics of their family values, customs, traditions, and beliefs. Casa Manila Museum, like the other houses that make up the Plaza San Luiz complex, has commercial establishments on the ground floor, and residential areas among its upper floors. The house evokes Filipino-Spanish opulence, from its ornate high ceilings and baroque walls, to its Castilian flooring, Victorian wood furniture, and tropical slats and ventilations.
