  • Manila’s Walled City Intramuros is Finally Open
  • Manila’s Walled City, Intramuros is now open to the public, the Department of Tourism (DOT) announced last Sunday.

    After the recommendation to put the National Capital Region (NCR) and the provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal, collectively known as NCR Plus, under a General Community Quarantine (GCQ) by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID), Tourism Bernadette Romulo-Puyat immediately declared the opening of Intramuros.

    However, only Fort Santiago and Baluarte de San Diego will be accessible to the public with limited capacity and shortened operating hours under strict health and safety guidelines. With this restriction under GCQ, tourist attractions can now accommodate and operate at 30 percent venue capacity, subject to strict compliance to health and safety protocols.

    “The reopening of Fort Santiago and Baluarte San Diego will allow visitors to again experience the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction as recognized by the prestigious World Tourism Awards,” Puyat said.
