In 1595, Manila was decreed to be the capital of the Philippines, although it had already in fact served that function practically from its founding in 1571. Legazpi then ordered the creation of a municipal government or cabildo with a set of Spanish-style houses, monasteries, nunneries, churches, and schools giving birth to Intramuros.
Manila is the capital and the second largest city in the Philippines which makes up Metro Manila along with other sixteen cities and one municipality.(PNA) -
