rodelosreyes Fruits of war : The ruins of San Francisco Church in Intramuros
.
One of the 8 majestic and colossal churches inside Intramuros during that time until the destruction of Manila during the Second World War. After the war instead of rebuilding the church, the Franciscans built their new home outside the walls of Intramuros, later named San Francisco del Monte, Quezon City, while the statue of San Antonio de Padua in front the church was transferred to its new home in Santuario de San Antonio, Forbes Park, Makati.
.
Unfortunately, the ruins were completely demolished to pave way for the construction of Mapua Institute of Technology. 😐

rodelosreyes I miss this resident puppy from @kapuluanvista! He's my travel buddy when we stayed in Kapuluan last 2012. He welcomed and accompanied us in the white sand beach of blue lagoon - free of charge! His name is Ziggy and he's so friendly!

rodelosreyes Colorized then and now photos: We no longer see this in Manila - electric tranvias. After World War 2, Meralco ceased its operation and jeepneys became our primary mode of transportation. But what if we combine jeepneys and tranvias in one picture?

Although not as majestic as its original architecture before it was bombarded during the Second World War, this simple 1958 design of Altar Mayor was blessed by two Popes, Paul VI, St John Paul II, and tomorrow by Pope Francis.
