Daily Prompt: Places: Beach, mountain, forest, or somewhere else entirely?

The Forever Historical Hispanic Beauty of Intramuros, Manila (the city within the city)!

Intramuros or literally means “within walls” is a city in Manila surrounded with thick brick walls built by the Spaniards during their era in the country.  The walls were built to protect the Spanish Governor-General, its administration and the whole city as well from any possible invasion for they all thought that the city would be forever a Spanish colony therefore they had it as the center of the Philippine-Spanish government.  The walls were never destroyed yet served as remains and attraction of the historical city within a city.  For further details, just click on each picture.
