I will could show a lot of spanish pics but... i think that is impossible to compare a sub-continent with an only country.

Yes, i think this thread should just change the title to " spanish colonies AND spain (friendly sharing)" i can't find too much sense in this competition...

I thought those "versus" were not allowed here. Yes, "and" sould be written in the title instead of that "vs".

Of all her former daughters, the Philippines was the farthest from Spain (across two oceans just to reach!). So she got the least share of glorious Spanish colonial architecture. The best bet would've been the capital Manila, but it was bombed to oblivion in World War 2.

Some remaining examples:

And although Manila may have remaining pockets of colonial architecture which has survived WW2 in a way or two:

Truth is, Manila conjures the image of a gritty, sprawling and vast Asian megacity quite unlike her colonial sisters:
