HISTORIC MANILA

this is the capital of the philippines

please add some manila photos
Manila became the seat of the colonial government of Spain when it controlled the Philippine Islands for over three centuries from 1565 to 1898. Beginning in 1898, the United States occupied and controlled the city and the Philippine archipelago until 1946. During World War II, much of the city was destroyed.

Awww... what a waste! I did catch glimpses of Manila City in the war movie 'The Great Raid' (2005), which was set in 1945, shown on a Malaysian TV channel last weekend. I thought it was not real. I thought it didn't look like the Manila of today at all. But now I know it was real and was a beautiful historical city indeed!

Whoops! I got lost in here... I couldn't find this thread!

Well, thank you skyscraper100. My office is just less than 5 minutes' walk to the Twin Towers... so, I've been there countless times. The last time was last Sunday.

The Philippine architecture can be seen in cathedrals and churches. And also, I am pround to say that Filipino architects had great contribution to our landmarks and the structures we have here today.

sadly, the many old structures destroyed by the 1945 battle of manila won't be restored.
