The capital of the Philippines is one of the ten most populous cities in the world. During its existence, Manila has experienced many shocks. The main ones are connected with the time of colonization and wars. The Spaniards left behind a cultural heritage, but destroyed a lot of Filipino national values. A variety of attractions have appeared in honor of the independence fighters. Jose Rizal, the hero of his people, was especially honored.
There is an Intramuros historic district in Manila, where almost every building, building and even walls are an architectural monument. There are many churches, but Kuiapo stands out among them. It houses a statue, for which several million people gather for a procession once a year. Manila is also the cultural center of the state, so the best museums of the Philippines are gathered here.
