Books, art and antiques in the heart of Intramuros. It would be easy to spend a day browsing at the Silahis Center and Tradewinds Books, 744 Gen. Luna, Intramuros, 63-2-527-2113 and 63-2-527-2112. http://www.silahis.com/ This beautiful restored or reconstructed building in Intramuros houses an art gallery and wonderful antique and gift shop and the Tradewinds Bookstore, one of our Manila favorites. Many used books here, a rather eclectic selection. It’s a peaceful refuge from the madness of Manila. The selection of antique furniture at Silahis will make you wish you were a bit richer. When you’re done at Silahis, wander a few steps over to the Ilustrado restaurant at 744 General Luna for lunch.
Share the joy
