#3 of 20 in Museums in Manila
Inside the fortifications of Fort Santiago, see Rizal Shrine, the site of the incarceration and death of Philippine national hero José Rizal, and today a museum offering guided tours. Wax dolls, memorabilia, artifacts, books, manuscripts, and other personal belongings tell the life story of José Rizal, a doctor and the leader of the national movement, who was executed by the Spanish colonial government. The most memorable exhibits include a copy of his last song, "Mi Ultimo Adios," and the first draft of the novel "Noli Me Tangere." After the tour, take a walk through the park, which features fountains and plenty of lush vegetation.
