The Rizal Shrine is not far from Rizal Landing Place. Here, there is a museum and a very pleasant garden with some humble houses. The entrance is free. The sunset time is beautiful, but pay attention that the gate closes at 5.

If you enjoy history, then this place is for you! If you're already touring Dakak, Gloria de Dapitan, then don't miss out this place. Jose Rizal is the Philippines's national hero and it is simply amazing to see how he lived during his exile.

When I was still a lil boi, I often travelled from Negros to Mindanao, usually going Dapitan. Gotta say, at that age I was fascinated by this Rizal dude. I had really fun memories.

It was an unplanned trip but we enjoyed it nevertheless. The shrine is located near Dakak Resort and was ideal after a hearty buffet lunch. The artifacts were well kept and there's just so much to see and learn.
