"The brick ruins are part of the oldest building in Fort Santiago. Built in 1593, the structure was a barracks building for Spanish soldiers. During the American period, army officers and their families lived here. The building was eventually destroyed during World War II."
This area is off limits now to the public because of the danger of falling bricks, but there are still people like me who wants to wander in these beautiful ruins... yeah i'm kinda hard headed. Besides, i really love this area, this had been a setting for numerous old films about the Spanish colonization.
Dont you just love this doorway? Makes you feel like you're back in that bygone era and any moment Maria Clara would appear with her umbrella wiping her brows. I know, i have an overactive imagination. =)
