Simple square
Dec 2018 • Solo
You will most likely pass by this small plaza when exploring the Intramuros area. Basically it is a triangle shaped plaza formed by 3 streets. The focal point is the statue of King Philip II of Spain with the Aduana Building as a background. I just took some photos and moved on.

Unique 'triangular' square in Intramuros
May 2018 • Couples
Plaza España is a small square in Intramuros and is triangular in shape and was originally called Aduana Square in the early Spanish colonial period. In the centre of the square is a monument to King Philip II. Plaza España is surrounded by several buildings but the most significant is the Aduana Building which is in ruins despite many attempts to restore it. There are many squares in the city but Plaza España is quite unique for being triangular and is worth visiting to see the ruins of the Aduana Building.

To honor Spain
Dec 2016 • Friends
Originaly in 1897 it was named Plaza de los Mártires de la Integridad Nacional in memory of Spanish Soldier who died in the encounters of August 1896.

It was rebuilt by the Intramuros Administration placing the statue and opened on July 1982. There's a statue erected to honor Philip II, King of Spain - the origin of the name of this island Philippines. To me this is a significant gesture of the Filipinos. Even if the plaza is not spacious but it is simply beautiful.

The Plaza Espana is adjoining the Aduana and the BPI Intramuros (formerly the Santo Domingo). The plaza was first known as Plaza Aduana. In the centre is a statue of King Philip the II.

Just a normal square, avoid it if you can.

Another of the many squares in Intramuros, frankly, there is nothing particularly interesting here, in fact I think it is not worth even bother to look for it, Intramuros is a large better better place to visit and for reasons of heat and humidity I would avoid spending time and energy looking for it.
