Baluarte de San Diego (Intramuros, Manila)

Posted by admin on January 2, 2007

Designed and built by Jesuit priest Antonio Sedeno from 1586 to 1587, it is one of the oldest stone fortifications in Intramuros. Began as a circular fort called Nuestra Senora de Guia. Renovated in 1593 to join the walls of the city. Fort fell in disrepair and, in 1644, construction began for a new baluarte which was completed between 1653 and 1663. Resembling an ace of spades, it housed a foundry during the 18th century.

The baluarte was breached by British forces with cannon fire in 1762. Restored and strengthened after the British occupation but was damaged during the 1863 earthquake. It was destroyed during the Battler of Manila in 1945. Restoration began in 1979 and completed in 1992.  (Intramuros Administration)

    I just want to ask, how much is the reservation for a wedding reception? My wedding is on December 12, 2009. And what about the catering services, is it included in the reservation or seperate?

    Please give me a feedback.

    Hi, how much is the rate for prenup location shoot and what is the process of getting permits etc? If you can send the details on my eadd, please.

  18. The rental for this place is 28,500 plus electricity of 5,000 plus 10% of the price of the caterer plus they only allow 50 AMPS of electricity so in case you are exceeding it you would need to provide a generator.

    So for example of the price is like this:

    Venue: 28,500
    Electricity: 5,000
    10% caterer prices: 10% of 50,000 = 5,000
    Generator: Minimum of 7,000 plus per hour of diesel which is about (500/hr*6) = 10000
    If your bringing Lechon this would cause 500/pc of Lechon Baboy and then 1000/pc of Lechon Baka

    And the grand total price for this venue is 48,500. And they won’t provide any tent or platform.

    So guys and gals. What do you think? Is it worth it? Imagine if your caterer price is worth 1,000,000 and you get 10% of it. That is 100,000 plus 28500 for venue, 5000 for electricity and if u would get a generator that is 10000 which would sum to 143,500 just for the venue.

    An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who has been doing a little research on
    this. And he in fact bought me breakfast simply because I discovered it for
    him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!
    ! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this matter
    here on your site.

  20. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  21. I seriously love your site.. Very nice colors & theme.
    Did you make this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my own blog and want to know where you got this from or just what the theme is named. Cheers!

    She scorched the ramp at an underwear fashion show, thanks to the Brazil butt lift workout
    program under Leandro Carvalho. It’s not the animal
    that matters, it’s where the meat comes from on that animal.
    Nothing at all intense, no “War Manual of Sun Tze”, absolutely no email or anything that involves you to think or strategize.
