It is the site of the old Kingdom of Maynila which became Manila, the capital of the Philippines and the rest of the Spanish East Indies during the Spanish period. As the most ravaged part of the city during the Battle of Manila in World War II, most of the walls, as well as the buildings were restorations including the Manila Metropolitan Cathedral.

Port Area is located west of Intramuros and south of the mouth of Pasig River. It is a reclaimed land developed after World War II to take advantage of its location in the natural harbor of Manila Bay.
Port Area is politically subdivided into 5 barangays – Barangay 649, including Baseco Compound/Engineer’s Island; and Barangays 650-653.

Quiapo is affectionately called the Heart of Manila due to its central location within the city. It is bounded by the Santa Cruz to its west and north, Sampaloc to its north, San Miguel to its east and southeast, and Pasig River to its south, across Ermita.
It is primarily known for being home to the image of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo Cathedral. The Black Nazarene is a highly popular image of Jesus Christ on his way to his crucifixion. Every January 9, millions of devout Catholics, especially those from the Philippines, join Traslación, a procession of the image of the Black Nazarene from Quiapo Cathedral to its original shrine in Intramuros, Manila.
Quiapo is perhaps the most colorful, chaotic, misunderstood and beloved district in Manila. Aside from Quiapo Cathedral, it is also home to the historic Plaza Miranda, the all-steel San Sebastian Cathedral, Manila Golden Mosque, also known as Masjid al-Dahab, and Quinta Market, a large neighborhood market popular to residents from all over Metro Manila during Christmas season for its sweet Christmas hams.

Santa Ana is mostly known for its hippodrome, which is now converted into commercial space, Santa Ana is a rather rundown area that has been undergoing revitalization for the past 10 years.
It is the only district of Manila that occupies areas both north and south banks of Pasig River. To its north is the confluence of Pasig and San Juan Rivers, two of the largest river systems in Metro Manila.
Santa Ana’s strategic location and access to navigable river systems allowed it to prosper prior to Spain’s the conquest of Manila and the Philippines. Recent findings in the field of history has confirmed that Santa Ana used to be the seat of an ancient kingdom called Namayan, whose dominion extends to several districts of Manila, namely, Malate, Paco, Pandacan, Quiapo, San Miguel and Santa Mesa; current cities in the metropolitan region, namely Makati, Mandaluyong (Mandaluyong’s Namayan district has retained the ancient name), Parañaque, Pasay, Pateros, San Juan, and Taguig, as well as portions of Pasig and Quezon City that used to belong to Mandaluyong and/or San Juan.
The Kingdom of Namayan was larger than its 2 rival precolonial kingdoms – the Kingdom of Maynila, which was to the south of the mouth of Pasig River, only covered present-day Intramuros while the Kingdom of Tondo, which lies north of the mouth of the same river, covers San Nicolas, Santa Cruz, Binondo, Tondo, and the unreclaimed parts of Port Area.
Santa Cruz is traditionally the gateway to Manila’s Chinatown, signified by an old arch at the entrance of Ongpin Street, facing Plaza Santa Cruz. It was the chosen seat of power in the brief British Occupation of the Philippines. As the premier business district during and immediately after American rule, the area is host to many beautiful but decaying art deco buildings.
Currently, a subdistrict called San Lazaro, which lies entirely within Santa Cruz, is undergoing intense gentrification.
Synonymous to Santa Cruz is Avenida Rizal, the once-elegant avenue of beautiful shop houses and grand cinemas now living under the shadow of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 1, whose northern half lies directly above the avenue.
Santa Mesa‘s southern border is composed of Pasig River, San Juan River and the confluence of those two rivers. Santa Mesa Boulevard forms its northern border and separates it from Sampaloc. Until the Jesuits built Santa Mesa’s own parish in 1911, the district was considered as a barrio of Sampaloc.
As the easternmost district of Manila, its eastern borders are the Galas-Santol district of Quezon City, and several barangays of San Juan .
Tondo is the largest district in Manila. It has the reputation of being the poorest too. Mostly residential in nature, many of its dwellers, particularly in areas close to Port Area and Manila Bay belong to the urban poor. Tondo is also home to many of Manila’s middle class.
Kingdom of Tondo, which lies north of the mouth of the same river, covers present-day districts of San Nicolas (Baaybay), Santa Cruz, Binondo and Tondo. It was allied with polities in Bulacan and Pampanga, as stated in the Laguna Copper Inscription, which is dated 900 CE.
Divisoria, a thriving retail mecca consisting of several blocks of bargain shopping, partly lies in Tondo, particularly Tutuban Mall and its surrounding areas. Other portions of Divisoria are in neighboring Binondo and San Nicolas.
