The Cathedral you see in the old photo above is the seventh one to be built on the site. It was replaced with the present one in 1958 after the former was destroyed, together with the rest of Intramuros, during the Battle of Liberation in 1945.

For a detailed history of the Cathedral, starting from the first one which was built in 1581, please head on to the official website of the Manila Metropolitan Cathedral.
