Introduction

The 27th Marian Procession in Intramuros started when President Marcos, through a presidential decree, created the Intramuros Administration (IA) to restore the Walled City, which was destroyed during the bombing of Manila in 1945. It also meant restoring traditions honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary on her feast day Dec. 8.

Basically all the Madonna reliquary of any significance from the entire archipelago is sent to Manila and accompanied by a group marchers for the procession that includes over 70 Mary statues, each with their own unique story.
