Often, I would go there to conduct business such as work permits and banking. My fiance, now my wife, suggested we tour Fort Santiago.

The fort was the site of several key battles over the years. Built in 1571 it was destroyed in 1574.

I highly recommend the Carlos Celdran tour. We caught the last bit of this one as we had to go work an overnight shift. Carlos Celdran is not only knowledgeable but he is hilarious and some of routines make the history come alive. You can book him here. Overall, the tour of Intramuros was inexpensive and historical. We made a lot of our own fun. We went in January so it was cooler than usual. But still beware the tropical sun and drink plenty of water.
