LOOK: Intramuros Is All Lit Up for Christmas
Including all the public parks!
(SPOT.ph) Intramuros in Manila, with streets that look like they're frozen in time, is a popular spot for photographers. The cobblestone roads, ruins of the forts and walls, and Spanish-era buildings make picture-perfect subjects for your next photo series. But the Walled City ups the ante this season by adding lamp posts and lights hanging from the trees—making the public spaces brighter for when you want to drop by in the evening.
This includes the spacious Plaza Moriones, the massive façade of Manila Cathedral, Plaza Roma with the Book Stop, and Burgos Drive. A colorful rendition of the Nativity is also up near the Juan Luna Monument as part of Intramuros' celebration of the Christmas season. Plaza Sto. Tomas, which was cleared of street vendors in August, also has new lights installed. The Intramuros Adminstration plans to maintain these lighting fixtures even after the holidays.
