Its historical landmarks include Fort Santiago, the old Spanish military headquarters; San Agustin Church, the oldest stone church in the city which has a museum of religious and secular art; Barrio San Luis, a complex of reconstructed period houses depicting the Filipino life styles of the 19th century. This walking tour takes you first through Fort Santiago which served as headquarters of the military might of the Spanish, Americans and Japanese colonizers until its destruction in 1945. The tour then proceeds past the Manila Cathedral, a magnificent feat with its intricate stone carving, stained glass mosaics and rosette windows, and then to the San Agustin Church, the oldest structure in the Philippines which dates back to 1571 and is home to religious and historical artifacts as well as priceless artworks. Then walk across the street to the Casa Manila, a museum that recreates the lifestyle of the colonial period during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The tour also includes Quiapo, a district popular to the locals for its open market and its church which enshrines the black statue of Jesus Christ; and finally, the Chinese Cemetery known for its peculiarity of having grandiose mausoleums with fascinating blend of different religious elements.
