The history of Intramuros, the old city of Manila, comes alive for young people in this ground-breaking book. INTRAMUROS: The Walled City is a paper cut-out model designed to be taken apart and assembled piece by piece by the whole family or by students in the classroom alone or as a group. Given the city’s 400-year history, creator Adrian Panadero chose to focus his book on the Intramuros of the 1800s, a time when Filipinos were awakening to a period of enlightenment after centuries of colonial rule.
