Oh, no! it is more time ago now! But this place gives you an impression of the time the Spanish power declined, some Philippine people got a high education, and the start of a big change in the world started. Only a few years after he was executed, Spain handed over its colony to the USA for just 20 Million... More

the experience was surreal-the fort, a moat and the foot steps when he took his final steps towards his liberation. Each space is well maintained and there is a definite calmness and serenity maintained at the place. One thing which kind of upset me- was the board saying everyone has to be silent and i hardly found that within the... More

Well yes it was interesting to learn about Jose Rizal and his important role in filipino history and yes it was nice to find out that the city has preserved some of its old charm, but if thats one of the most recommended sites in this 14 million metropolis, then well... its far from other Asian capitals such as Singapore,...

Rizal is whom Philippines embrase as hero. This is the memoir of his life and struggle. A short visit will do here. It's not a big place after all.

I normally start on this spot when I have visitors. It is just so disappointing that there is now photo bomber behind the shrine. Nonetheless, this place is Manila's symbol and its story must be told with pride.

With a tall building being construct in the background, I question what the heck filipinos are thinking for this to happen. He is one of our heroes who fought spaniards using his pen. This is not one to miss when visiting manila

A must visit if you are in the Philippines as this was a very important person to the people here, and a good way to learn about there history.

We enjoyed this spot and the history that went with it, we are not in another part of the Philippines where history does not appear to figure, so am glad we found out more when we had the chance.

Great way to spend a bit of your afternoon. Lots of vendors nearby and other things to see and do. Its too bad some developer is building a hi-rise where it ruins the views.
