“Lot's of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

It's good to learn about the history of the country by visiting this place. It's quite a cheap entertainment considering there is a free fountain show at night.

“Small and quick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Its part of the 75 php you pay to get in to Intramuros. Take your time and look at everything. My fiance and I spent about 3 hours at intramuros.

“If you didn't know Jose Rizal before...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

If you've ever wondered why Dr Jose Rizal is the national hero of The Philippines, check this place out - they have his clothes, personal effects and writings from his prematurely ended short life.

“the place to know more about the Philippine's National Hero”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Your visit to the fortified walls (Intramuros) of Manila would not be complete without seeing this Shrine.

This Shrine is fortified complex dedicated to the lifework of José Rizal is located on Santa Clara Street, Fort Santiago, Intramuros, Manila.

This houses the building the Philippines' national hero spent his last night and where his family later found concealed in an oil lamp, the famous poem Mi último adiós (My Last Farewell).

The shrine exhibits Rizal's various memorabilia such as the shells he collected in Dapitan, books, manuscripts and artworks belonging to the prodigious and multifaceted Rizal.

A portion of this Shrine serves as a venue for theatrical performances such as those presented by PETA some years back,
