When visiting the old walled city of Manila, don't forget to see the Rizal Shrine, which is within Fort Santiago. Rizal is the national hero of the Philippines. He was martyred by the Spanish because he spoke out against the problems of colonialism and imperialism. He was an amazing guy who was a skilled writer, scientist and diplomat.

Nice attraction, great water display, lots of people, lots and lots. Don't use the local photographers though, they are expensive.

Fort Santiago– Rizal's Golden Footsteps leading to his execution spot. Rizal's obelisk memorial shrine. It was such an honor visiting this place with my father, now deceased. It was Dad's first time back to the Philippines after nearly 40 years. He didn't know that it would be his last trip. I was blessed to have been brought here, to the... More

Before coming here, I didn't know anything about Rizal, so it was wonderful learning about what happened here and what he stood for. When we were here, there was a school tour. How awesome for kids to be able to see such a vivid museum of their national hero! This is the only museum I've been to in the Philippines... More

Well laid out it eases understanding a tragedy which essentially paved a gradual road to liberty, focussing chronologically on the life and wilful death of a national hero. Hard to comment further as this symbol is of such utter importance to the Philippine people. Visit the statues on the execution ground in Rizal Park too, adorned by his antemortem poem.

This place gave an early glimpse of life during those early years of Philippines history and how a learned and wealthy man was coverages to go against the government of that day and time was an inspiration to me. Definitely gave a lot of food for thought about his legacy. If you are a history buff, put this on your... More

This museum proved to be a highlight of our most recent visit to Manila. Located in Fort Santiago, the museum offers good information for anyone interested in the history of the Philippines. It features details on the life of Jose Rizal, a national hero and martyr. Boards in the first room tell the story of Rizal's life, from birth to... More
