SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH,  PLAZA DE ESPAÑA - 2005
 


Although the sign has gone and the name does not exist in current Manila Street Maps, the small monument to the left pays tribute to King Philip II of Spain. The Bank of the Philippine Islands Building stands where Sto. Domingo Church once stood. This is the corner of Solana and A. Soriano Jr. (formerly Calle Aduana). The Japanese (cars) have once again taken over Intramuros..
