Metro Manila · Glorietta Malls
Originally a park, Glorietta today forms the heart of Ayala Center, the giant shopping district of Makati City with its interconnected malls and department stores. Glorietta offer a wide variety of retail products, dining options and entertainment, making it a popular venue for family shopping sprees as well as night outs with friends.
About the Mall
Glorietta is owned by the Ayala Family, Makati's old business dynasty. Formerly just a 5-storey retail building, it was developed into a full-scale mall by Ayala Land in the latter part of the 80s.
Glorietta 1 to 4 are connected with each other and with neighbouring shopping malls Greenbelt, Rustan's Makati, SM Makati, and The Landmark. Only Glorietta 5, located across Rustan's Makati, is detached from the others sections. In the center of Glorietta you find the Activity Center, an open space used for fairs, mass, sales, contests, and other events. It is not always easy to find your way around in Glorietta 1 to 5, also because the mall has constantly been expanded and/or redesigned in the last 15 years.
The numerous Philippine and international stores in Glorietta offer a wide variety of retails goods for every wallet size. The mall provides Megacitizens with everything they need, except for a supermarket. For that you have the nearby grocery stores in SM Makati, Rustan's and Landmark, all of which you can reach without even stepping outside.
Glorietta also satisfies food cravings through a number of restaurants and its food court. Many restaurants have been added with the recent extension of Glorietta 1 and 2 in 2013/14.

Location And How To Get There
The Glorietta malls are located within Legazpi Village Hotspot. For the exact location, refer to the map on the right side.
All buses that go through Ayala Avenue stop right in front of Glorietta for unloading. The nearest loading zone would be at the Philippine Stock exchange, though. The nearest train stop is MRT Ayala Station at EDSA. From there it is less than 10 minutes by foot and you can walk straight through SM Makati.
If you are already in Makati, it is worth considering to just walk to Glorietta. An elevated walkway leads all the way through Legazpi Village via Greenbelt to Glorietta malls.
