Manila Cathedral information
Lonely Planet review
The Manila Cathedral was destroyed in WWII, but the present edifice, erected in 1951, looks suitably ancient with its weathered Romanesque facade and graceful cupola. Inside are a gilded altar, a 4500-pipe organ, and rosette windows with beautiful stained glass. The cathedral fronts Plaza de Roma , which was a bloody bullring until it was converted into a plaza. To one side a new Treasury Department building has been built on the ruins of the Ayuntamiento , once the grandest building in all of Intramuros.
