Staycation in Makati - Gramercy Residences

Gramercy Residences is one of the Philippines most prestigious skyscrapers -A new york inspired luxury tower with unmatched beauty and elegance. It has an amazing access to famous mall in Makati such as Greenbelt and Century city mall.








The services and facilities provided by the Gramercy Residences By Zenrooms ensure a pleasant stay for us. Yes, That is my unit host. For a budget traveler like me, We always believe in "Travel more, and pay-in less" without sacrifing our comfort. 




Zenrooms in Gramercy have been carefully giving a highest degree of comfort and convenience.



Our Accommodation:
Again, booked our room thru zenrooms.com "Gramercy Residences".



Originally, It was just a standard room for two but upon check in, They surprisingly change it to "Loft style". What an upgrade bes! That moment, I felt very lucky since it is way more better than the standard or regular room.





Baluarte de San Diego in Intramuros

Baluarte de San Diego in Intramuros is the oldest stone fort in Manila. Design and built by Jesuit Priest namely Antonio Sedeno from 1586 to 1587.




History
It was called Nuestra SeƱora De Guia renovated in 1593 to join the walls of the city. Fell in disrepair and in 1644 construction began for new baluarte which was completed between 1653 and 1663. Resembling an ace of spades, Its housed a foundry during the 18th century.





Baluarte was breached by British forces with canon fire in 1762. Restored and strengthened the British occupation but was damaged during the earthquake in 1863.




It was then condemned by the Spaniards. It was totally destroyed during the battle of Manila in 1945 or the World war II. Restoration done from 1979-1992 and now a major tourist attraction in the walled city - Intramuros.






Allow me to show you some good spots inside the Baluarte de San Diego.
