You Can Check Out Manila's Lagusnilad Even While Stuck at Home
Check it out in 360-degree view.
(SPOT.ph) After months of waiting, Manila City proudly launched the new and improved Lagusnilad Underpass on August 24. Photos of the vertical gardens, baybayin-inspired signage, and colorful murals have surfaced online since, encouraging us to check out the rehabilitated pedestrian walkway that we've always deserved. And while most of us are still wary about going out, you can experience the Manila walkway virtually through this 360-degree virtual tour.
Panoramic shots start from Lagusnilad Underpass walkway on the west side, just in front of Intramuros; then continue to the vibrant murals depicting Philippine history by artists Marianne Rios, Jano Gonzales, and Ianna Engano from the University of the Philippines' College of Fine Arts. On the other side, you can see brightly lit photographs of Manila City's famous landmarks like the San Sebastian Cathedral, Quiapo Church, and Rizal Park. The virtual tour goes on to the east-side staircase leading to the jeepney terminal. You can also "go down" a flight of stairs at the mid-entrance.
High-resolution 360-VR photos were provided by Firefly Digital Designs, which has previously worked with the National Museum, National Historical Commission of the Philippines, and the Department of Tourism to promote local sites through virtual tours.
