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.

People in the Phillipines worship Rizal, which means that everyone with nothing to do just loiters around the Rizal Shrine. That said, the actual shrine is well kept and nice for a sit down and a couple of photo ops

Interesting to learn the history of the man, and what he stood for in Manila, but pretty quick look through, as it contains family furniture of the time, unfortunately he died at 35 so not able to accumulate a lot of personal effects but extremely well travelled for his years and for his time

Compared to other local parks / gardens / spaces, they've done a very nice job of maintaining the gardens and basic grounds, even though the many of the buildings on site are now just shells. It was great to see hoards of school kids beings shown around and fully costumed actors reliving historical moments for them; keeps a place like... More

Situated along Roxas Blvd, next to the US embassy this historical park was the site of Dr. Jose Rizal's execution in 1896. Beautiful, setting next to Manila bay. It needs an overhaul, the different gardens are old, badly maintained. Facilities are non existent.

The shrine to Dr Jose Rizal is very informative and would be fascinating to a Filipino interested in their country's history. I really enjoyed this portion of my visit to Intramuros and took some great photos but, not being a Pinoy, I don't think I got the full effect of what I was seeing.

Peaceful and relaxing to go for a walk here, and take in some history of the place. It was also a great place to take photo's, and see the busts of the 14 Presidents.

This is a shrine to who most Filipinos consider the greatest person in their history. Jose Rizal was a writer, scientist, and patriot. He was eventually executed by the Spanish (who still ruled the Philippines at the time) It's okay if you are a history buff or are in the neighborhood. Worth the trip? Not in my opinion.

Rizal Park has always been a symbol to me of my sense of history and where the mass of Filipinos go to have a photo shoot of the changing of the guards at the Rizal Shrine. Rizal park has always been a very early bonding place of my children as we usually stay at the Chinese Park then in the... More
