Recommendation by Lemi
In a humbler corner of Intramuros lies Plazuela de Santa Isabel. A park and courtyard, the plaza is part of the Santa Isabel College, one of Asia’s oldest colleges founded as early as 1632. It remembers those lost in the tailend of the Second World War, The Battle of Manila A little monument, called the Memorare Manila 1945, stands in the heart of the plaza. A single hooded figure cradles a child as bodies are strewn around them. It’s a sombre sight, grounding the deaths that hang over Intramuros not just in World War II, but in the battles that came before.
