Just very close to the Monastery of San Agustin is the nice garden of Father Blanco situated. Seen with lots of palm trees and walkways for some strolling maybe within the monastery.walls.

Nothing extraordinary but historical, I wonder how the original garden looked like before it was destroyed during the war. Very adjacent to San Agustin Museum, with a wall stands between them, it is now a venue for wedding receptions.

Located in front of Manila Cathedral. If your going to Intramurus this is the first monument that you will notice. You can take a rest in here because there are some bench in here.

Location is in front of Manila Cathedral. It's a small garden where you can see the entire church. Taking photos of Manila Cathedral from this place is amazing. If you're facing the church at the side you will see the Palacio Gobernador.
