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.

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
