This is a review for RIZAL SHRINE - the park is separate. Shrine entry is Free, however, you MUST pay 75P to enter the park and thus the Shrine! It was air conditioned, with a wealth of information, mock-ups, videos and artefacts.

It's a must do on your tour of Manila but it's just sad to see how third world countries keep their places of interests kept, or lack thereof!

We stopped by the Rizal Shrine as part of our Intramuros tour - and the 1000p we paid for the 1 hour carriage ride around the area was worth every peso. The Shrine (more of a museum) is of significant historical importance, regardless of your own cultural background, which our tour guide illuminated, drawing on my American citizenship and Dutch/German...

Extremely well-done display that makes the entire visit fee to Ft Santiago worth it on its own. This helped me learn an enormous amount about this great and diversely-talented man and his country's history. One of my Top 5 for this trip.

Photos, memorabilia and the life story of Jose Rizal in a place where he was once imprisoned and given a trial with a predictable outcome. Cameras are allowed but camera flash is not.

Enjoyed the peep into his personal life. Doesn't take much time. So I would certainly recommend it. We had a guide with us who explained everything to us ... without her we wouldn't have known all the interesting facts.

went for the intramuros visit and went inside Fort Santiago. It is very well worth the visit, especially to learn about Rizal's biography and what he did for his country.
