Manila Cathedral

In another Intramuros trip, me and my two guy friends had a random walk in General Luna St. (near Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila and Department of Labor and Employment.)
We went straight ahead and passed by the National Commission of Culture and Arts, where I remembered watching films at during my college years.

Then we also passed by the San Agustin Church, which is a marvel on its own because of the cobblestone path which transports anyone to a time where the entire Intramuros is stilled ruled by the Spanish colonizers.
And then just a few walks more...we found it The Manila Cathedral.

The Manila Cathedral is a 400 year old structure which has been destroyed a number of times because of natural disasters. The current structure that we see now is completed in 1958. So different from the cathedral that was built way way back in 1581 which was made of only nipa and bamboo.
