Plaza de Roma is an open space in intramuros and is the center of the walled city. This plaza used to have the name Plaza de Armas, until during the US administration it was changed to Plaza McKinley. After independence, the Philippine government changed it to Rome, because it is in front of the Roman Catholic church, Manila Cathedral.
There is a statue of Charles IV of Spain which was built in 1824, for bringing the vaccine to cure chickenpox to the Philippines at that time.
In the middle of this place there is a fountain that is comfortable and beautiful with the presence of a garden of grass to trees on its four axes.
Plaza de Roma is also surrounded by important landmarks including;
– Manila Cathedral
– Palacio del Gobernador
– Casas Consistoriales
– Real Manila Audience.
