Casa Manila Museum chronicles the social history of Manila during the Spanish Colonial era. This reproduction of a grand 19th-century mansion, decorated and furnished in authentic period style, is typical of the homes of affluent Filipino families, offering a fascinating glimpse of a bygone era. The museum is arranged over three floors, with the principal living area occupying the topmost floor, reached via a grand staircase. The middle floor contains the bedrooms and the office-library, where you can see the family treasure chest that safely housed gold and silver coins and other valuables. Take a step back in time in the kitchen, imagining hard-working domestic staff carrying the heavy pots and pans back and forth in the intense heat from the charcoal oven as the family waited in anticipation of a delicious feast around the 18-seater dining room table. Casa Manila Museum is located in historic Intramuros, an easy taxi or jeepney ride from the city centre and a short hop from Central Terminal Station. The museum is open every day except Monday and there is a modest admission fee. Visitors should be aware that no photography is allowed inside the building.

An iconic landmark in Manila being a 64-hectare stone citadel, founded by the Spanish in 1571. The name Intramuros was derived from the Latin word meaning "within the walls". This walled structure has withstood wars, natural disasters and successive waves of colonial invaders, and as such stands as a metaphor for Manila itself. Within the protective walls rose a city of stone palaces, churches, restaurants, monasteries, convents, schools, and fine courtyard houses. In the centuries that followed, Manila (meaning Intramuros) served as the capital of the Spanish East Indies - the centre of commerce, education, government, and religion in Spain's most distant imperial possession.
Afterwards, we would proceed to Casa Blanca which is one of those Intramuros venues that will provide you a vintage, hispanic and nostalgic touch as this will remind you of the gracious living of the 19th century.
During the Spanish era, which was where the Filipinos-Moslems took refuge after the Spaniards occupied Intramuros in 1571. It was also used as an execution ground by the Spaniards for Filipino rebels and mutineers. It has an area of 58 hectares which runs from Taft Avenue up to the walls of the famous Manila Bay.
