Santo Domingo church that we know today is along Quezon Avenue, QC. The original church was in Intramuros. It was totally destroyed by bombing and fire during the second world war. Here are memorable photographs that revive memories, as well as to provide a glimpse, especially to younger generations. Within the area were important establishments, among them the University of Santo Tomas which has be transferred to its present location along España.  A plaza marks what remains of the old campus.
