Ermita is one of the vibrant districts of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. It is situated between the district of Malate and the old walled city of Intramuros. It was originally a fishing village during the Spanish Rule. However, when it became the site for the Nuestra Señora de Guia chapel that accommodated hermits in the 16th century, the locals began calling the town “La Ermita.” This historic district is a tourist magnet with numerous bars, restaurants, clubs, and shops. It is also close to important government buildings and landmarks in the city.
- Walk around the Rizal Park in Ermita, Manila’s main city park which houses the monument of Jose Rizal, the national hero of the Philippines.
- Visit the National Museum, which is the old Congress building, and now features collections of historical and archaeological artefacts, paintings, and fine art pieces.
- Experience Manila’s vibrant nightlife when you stop by Julio Nakpil Street, filled with restaurants, cafes, and bars that offer acoustic performances.
The Ermita district can be accessed via the Light Rail Transit line 1. Passengers can get off at either one of the three stations that serve the district. One of these stations is Central Terminal, which is near the Manila City Hall and Mehan Garden. The other stations are called United Nations and Pedro Gil. During rush hours, LRT trains are packed with commuters. A great alternative is to hire a metered taxi that has relatively cheaper rates than most countries. If you’re aware of the routes, you may ride a bus or the local transport called jeepney.
