" Casa Manila "


Anyone who's been here will take one look at this foto and instantly recognize where it is.
I've posted the walled city of Intramuros many times before but this would be the first to introduce you
one of the remaining old houses that is "Casa Manila".
It was once called Barrio de San Luis, it takes you back during the Spanish period in the mid 1880's.
A lot has been said and blogged about this place, yet it never ceases to amaze me that despite some of the
old and torn down Spanish houses that has been left abandoned.
This structure stil remains in good shape and well preserved.

Inside is this inviting courtyard and a fountain surrounded by lush greenery.
The stairs you see above heads to the main Casa and interior which sadly prohibits us from taking fotos.
