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 Señora 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.

BALUARTE DE SAN DIEGO HISTORY IS PRINTED AT THE BACK OF THE ENTRANCE FEE TICKET. THE TICKET PRICE IS 1$ OR PHP 50.





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






Kinda creepy rest-room. 

How to get there?
From LRT Central station, Lakad nalang kayo pa Intramuros mga bes. Malapit sa PLM at DOLE

Eto yung moment na "Sa wakas, Napuntahan din kita". Matagal ko na talagang pangarap na makapunta dito mga bes. Tinatanong ko sa mga nakakasama ko sa intramuros kung san ba yung parang bato na mukang maze kaso hindi rin nila alam. Ayun, Sa ilang beses pabalik balik ko sa intramuros nakita ko na din sya sa wakas 😍

PS: Totoo nga na kapag may gusto ka, Wag mong susukuan. lol Open sya Everyday
from 8am to 5pm ✨

TIPS:
🔹Wag mahihiyang magtanong 🎶
🔹Best time "Umaga at Hapon". Tanghali kasi ako pumunta bes, Nasunog talaga yung balat ko.
🔹Wag na kayong sumakay sa loob ng intra, Enjoy naman ang paglalakad dahil sa makikita nyong mga view.
🔹Magdala ng pamaymay at tubig para iwas sa init.
🔹Namahalan ako sa 75 na entrance kaya ginamit ko yung magical ID ko nung college para 50 nalang. Wag nyo po akong gayahin ha.
🔹Pwedeng kumain sa loob pero wag na wag magakakalat. Practice "LNT".
🔹Bawal mamitas ng bulakbulak.

Alam kong marami pa kayong matitirang oras, Pwede nyong pang idagdag o isama sa IT nyo:

🔸Manila Cathedral
🔸Fort Santiago
🔸Rizal Park
🔸National Museum
🔸Planetarium
🔸Chinese and Japanese Garden

Ingat and Godbless
