The Baluarte de San Diego is a fabulous park containing beautiful gardens and historic fort remains in Manila. It is a fairly small park and most people will be able to cover it in about an hour. The park is next to a golf course so beware of flying golf balls. There is literally a sign warning of this. I found a stray golf ball on the grounds and took it home as a souvenir. There are many great photo opportunities in the park so bring your camera for sure.

From this old and historical part you actually have a glance of the new city, the core of what Manila is, a bland between the 2.

This is one of my favorite place. Balurte de San Diego has a good spot to take a selfie or photo with friends. Many sky crepes surround this place, it makes a beautiful view of your photos. Just try climb the fort and look around, how beautiful Manila.

There really is not much to see here. You get to see some ruins from the 16th-17th century, but that is about it. There is also something of a botanical garden. This is worth checking out as an afterthought but is unlikely to be a must-see item while in Intramuros.

Found this lovely garden whilst doing a walking tour of Intramuros, the old walled town of Manila. This was originally a large round fortification at one corner of the old town walls. It suffered much damage during its turbulent history and after the end of WW2, was the site of archaeological digs, before being converted into pleasant gardens which now host many cultural events. During our visit we noted quite a number of photo shoots taking place, most of which were wedding groups, as well as fashion shoots. Not very expensive to enter and a great place to visit when touring Intramuros. Great views of the City from the walls, looking over a golf course

Our kids loved exploring the Baluarte and Japanese gardens. There was a lot of interesting things to look at and wonder about. We walked all over, climbing the stairs to look down a maze like circular chamber structure, getting in one of the guard towers. The best part was the pretty Japanese Gardens which were well maintained. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised that this held our teen and pre-teen kids attention for quite some time.

This place has a very nice overall feel to it and is not too crowded. One of the nicest historical places i visited with my girlfriend while visiting Manila - well worth the trip.

Another place to see inside the walled city. Unfortunately the Japanese canon remains inaccessible still. This place shows the Luneta side, a few old Spanish cannons and a steam engine relic is showcased.
