My sleeping pattern was totally messed up! Though I only had 4 hours of sleep, I was still determined to accomplish one of my vacation goals: I have been to the walled city when I was in High School, around 16 years ago.
It was one of the places I greatly appreciated as a student. The memory of my first visit is now a blur. Intramuros is the oldest district of Manila. It is a city inside a defensive wall built by the Spaniards in the late 16th century.
The fortification protected the city from foreign invaders. Now, it houses the Intramuros administration and government offices. While taking pictures of the magnificent Manila Cathedral, we were approached by kalesa drivers who offered tours at P per person.
A kalesa is horse-driven carriage. We refused all offers until an Ilonggo pedicab driver came to us, presented a map and offered P50 per person tour. We hesitated at first, but he was so persistent and looked trust-worthy, so we accepted the cheap deal.
A pedicab is a small pedal-operated vehicle, known as trishaw in other countries. Kalesa at Plaza Roma walking tour turned into pedicab tour With the help of Manong Pedicab Driver I forgot his name, sorry and his Intramuros map, we roamed the streets of Intramuros.
Then, we walked to Casa Manila, an architecture which resembles a typical Spanish Mansion. Built init is the oldest stone church in Philippines. At 10 AM, I already felt the hot and humid Philippine weather. I realized that we made the right decision to ride a pedicab instead of having a walking tour.
After a short walk from the gallery, we saw Reducto De San Pedro, a structure outside the walls which used to be a storage room for cannonballs. It is now situated in the middle of a golf course. We also had a short stop at Puerto Real, then went to Baluarte de Dilao. San Diego gardens The cells located near Puerta Real Baluarte de Dilao A defensive structure with 12 cannons Aside from the heritage sites, schools were also built inside Intramuros.
We passed by Mapua, Lyceum and Letran before heading to our last stop. We bid goodbye to our pedicab driver turned tourist guide at the entrance of Fort Santiago. He was courteous and very helpful, so apart from the P50 tour fee per person, we gave him an extra P Moving on, we bought entrance tickets at P75 per adult and gallivanted at Fort Santiago.
It is considered to be the citadel of Intramuros. There were murals and lifesize cardboard standees wearing Filipino costumes. After the comical moments, we entered main gate of Fort Santiago where an important, heart wrenching part of the Philippine history was waiting for us.
From the gate, we walked to the Rizal Shrine.
It is the barracks where Dr. Jose Rizal was confined during his trial.Rizal Chapter 22 Summary Words | 8 Pages.
