Manila City Hall





Manila City Hall


The Manila City Hall. One of most famous landmarks of Manila. It is located just outside of Intramuros. Was researching about it this morning and found this piece:

"One is hard pressed to define the architecture of the Manila City Hall. Note, for instance, the absence of an entrance, as well as the random placement of the tower. Denigrated by critics when it was unveiled in the 1930s, the City Hall today fascinates the viewer for precisely the same reason it was vilified--its intriguing lack of symmetry and regularity. Beautifully lighted at night, it is one of Manila's most distinctive landmarks."

Hmm I myself didn't know about that!
