We loved the water fountain, disappointed that the skating rink has gone and the gardens to the left are closed. Central, lovely evening walk and close to jeepney stops.

This was an upgraded version of the Rizal Shrine in Fort Santiago. More on the last trial and execution of our National Hero.

Rizal Shrine was included in our tour of Manila and part of the stop in Intramuros. If you spend time there, you will learn about the journey of Jose Rizal and his struggle against the Spanish colonization. Very educational museum.

This place is more than just a shrine, it's a real living museum! You could get all useful information about this National Hero from this shrine, as all information are in well order. From his early life, to his successful day as a young doctor and finally up until his tragic day as the hero for his people, all these... More

Many people knew Rizal as the National Hero of the Philippines, but not many knew about his life. This place showcased Jose Rizal very well. If you are into history, this is a must see. PLUS its air conditioned and clean so I believe you will have a pleasant experience.

Rizal Park is the shrine of our beloved national hero Jose Rizal. You can't be a traveller and not visit this-this is an amazing attraction. Very memorable.

Make sure you have your photo taken by the local photographers. Find someone who still uses film, most have moved on to digital. Enjoy this place while it lasts; Torre de Manila is a high rise apartment building is being constructed behind the Rizal Monument and it is ruining the view.
