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.

The place served as a home of the once almighty national hero of the Philippines: Dr. José Protacio Mercado Rizal Alonso y Realonda. The place is old and very historic. You can learn about Dr. Rizal's biography and contributions inside the shrine.

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.

Love the history of Jose Rizal. Great man. Someday my hope is that the Philippines will overcome the government corruption and see progress and development not seen since Marcos' days. Then maybe parks and shrines will once again be polished and cared for as befits their history.

Its one of the place where our hero Rizal stayed. Its inside Fort Santiago one of the basic stop in your tour of Intramuros. If you like personalities or hero worship please do visit this.
