Intramuros Virtual Tours

Since you cannot fly to visit the Philippines, we are bringing the Philippines to you! Starting with Manila, we invite you to walk the cobbled streets of this old city and experience the colonial history of the country.

Intramuros, which literally means “within walls”, was built in the 16th century as the capital of Spain’s new colony, the Philippines. Today, Intramuros continues to host landmark structures that drive the national historic consciousness of Filipinos. Intramuros Virtual Tours was launched in line with the Intramuros Administration’s “Travel From Home” campaign and in partnership with the Department of Tourism in the Philippines. This month of July, visit Baluarte de San Diego and Casa Manila from the comfort of your own home.

Baluarte de San Diego

Walk inside the Baluarte de San Diego located within the vast walls of Intramuros and learn more about the history of the Philippines and the transformation of this former military fortification to a charming and nostalgic garden.

Casa Manila

Visit Casa Manila inside Plaza San Luis, a cultural-commercial complex in Intramuros. Casa Manila is a remarkable house that takes you back in time to the 1800s and showcases the beautiful and practical designs of a Philippine colonial home.
