"Manila Cathedral " Intramuros Tip by keeweechic

Intramuros, Manila: 126 reviews and 242 photos

 
 

Across from the fort is Manila Cathedral. The original church on this site was built in 1571 of nipa (Philippine palm). Natural disasters and fire necessitated the construction of four additional cathedrals. The latest devastation took place during the bloody Battle of Manila at the end of WWII. Italian sculptors are responsible for the front statues and the bronze doors. Plaza Roma facing the cathedral is the companion to Piazzale Manila in Rome.
