Intramuros gives vulnerable population a breathing space

As Intramuros reopens its sites, museums, and indoor attractions, thereby provide the public with an alternative and safer venue for leisurely activity, the Intramuros Administration (IA) will soon open its open-air sites as venues for morning exercises exclusively for the vulnerable population starting October 30.

“We wish to give our fellow Filipinos, especially those who belong to the vulnerable sector, a breathing, healing and comfortable space,” says Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Berna Romulo Puyat.

The vulnerable population, namely the senior citizens, persons with disability (PWD), pregnant women, and persons with health risks will be allotted two hours every Saturday from 8 AM to 10 AM, to do their morning exercises at Fort Santiago and Baluarte de San Diego. Through an advance ticket reservation system, vulnerable individuals who are fully vaccinated can avail of this exclusive arrangement.

“We see this as an opportunity for the vulnerable sector to enjoy the green spaces of Intramuros for their overall health and well-being. As we have recently welcomed visitors ages 18 to 65, we are making the place more inclusive by providing a dedicated period where our senior citizens, persons with disability (PWD), pregnant women, and persons with health risks can enjoy a time in Intramuros safely,” added Secretary Puyat.

The exclusive visit for the fully vaccinated, vulnerable population is open every Saturday, beginning on October 30 from 8 AM to 10 AM, and can booked through the following link: bit.ly/3ilptmu. For more information, the public can visit the social media accounts of Intramuros Administration on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
