Travel to Philippines: Manila: Intramuros: Photo 12
The center of Intramuros was the Plaza de Palacio, later the Plaza McKinley, now the Plaza de Roma. We're looking south to the cathedral, which was rebuilt in 1958 but looks very much like the destroyed cathedral, except for the bell tower (the original cathedral lost its tower in an earthquake of 1880). Private homes, now gone, were on the opposing or north side of the square. The old palace, also gone, was on the west, while the Ayuntamiento or government office building survives in ruins on the east.
