To further protect Intramuros as a national historical monument of the Philippines, it is now included in UNESCO's Tentative List of World Heritage Sites. The entry, Colonial Urban Plan and Fortifications of the Walled City of Manila, was submitted last February 7, 2024, and states that the "16th-century gridiron urban plan of Intramuros, a masterstroke of colonial urban planning in the early Modern Era, is exceptionally intact.
