Luneta is Spanish for "half-moon in shape" which seems to appropriately describe this promenade
The Luneta, found in Manila, was a promenade used by the socially prominent in Philippine history. Every day at sunset, the people would arrive to admire the beautiful vista, and to be admired themselves. Horse drawn carriages would circle around the track in a clock wise direction. The only exceptions to this traffic flow were for the Governor and the Archbishop, who were entitled to travel in the opposite direction. Occasionally, executions were carried out here as well.
