I didn't know anything about Rizal, so this was a nice little history lesson for me. Interesting & informative, without being too much. Well worth a visit.

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
