Philippine - Mexican Marker Plaza

Isa sa mga di pinapansing Plaza sa loob ng Intramuros ang Philippine - Mexican Marker Plaza o mas kilala bilang Plaza Mexico.


Actually di ko alam kung anu ang kasaysayan na bumabalot dito sa Plaza Mexico pero dahil Technology age na tayo tinanong ko si uncle google about this one.

At according to Habagatcentral ;  Called as Plaza Mexico, this place–the banks of Pasig River in Intramuros Manila–has been the original port of call of the fabled galleons of the past. Indeed, the 270 years of galleon trade that became one of the Spanish Empire’s economic machinery and an event that triggered globalization into a whole new level.


Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Fray Andres de Urdaneta started their expedition towards the Philippines on November 21,1564–more than 20 years after Magellan was killed in Cebú, and eventually started the Spanish Colonial Era in the Philippines that lasted for more than three centuries. And it was Fray Andres de Urdaneta that discovered the tornaviaje–the route back to Nueva España or México which would eventually start the galleon trade.

  3. I agree, hindi nga masyado pansinin ang marker na ito. Lagi akong nadadaan sa plaza na ito, lalo na kapag papuntang Intramuros pero ngayon ko lang nakita ng malapitan at nalaman kung para saan nga ito.

    I hope Philippines and Mexico will have a stronger bond and economic ties. Baka si Jessica Sanchez ang maging tulay para doon. hehe
