Within the walls of Manila / by Supreet Kaur

Intramuros is the oldest district of the city of Manila (or Maynila). During the Spanish period, Intramuros was Manila itself. Intramuros (Spanish for "within the walls") also describes its structure - surrounded by thick walls and moats. 

Now its ruins of what remains post exchanging several hands (from the Muslims to the Spanish to the Spanish church to the Americans), wars and bombings, and Filipino corruption.
