Manila is the capital city of the Philippines, founded on June 24, 1571 by Spanish conquistador Miguel López de Legazpi. It is one of the oldest cities in the country and was the seat of power for most of the colonial rules of the Philippines. It is situated on the eastern shore of Manila Bay and contains multitudes of landmarks which dates back to the 15th Century such as the Spanish colonial era Walled City of Intramuros.

Manila is the second most populous city in the Philippines after Quezon City with a population of 1,780,148 in 2015. Because of its small land area and huge population, Manila is regarded as one of the most densely populated cities in the world with 42,857 people per square kilometer.

These districts are further subdivided into 100 zones and 896 barangays.
