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.

  • In Manila, the locals could give pause to the place ... Here, too, had multiple visits than a lot of clean uncluttered feel. In recent years, shifting from just below the statue of Rizal to get this. But to reach up under Lapu-Lapu can take a picture of the statue. But it's not too big size, it is doing so on a statue is not easy. It is the size of a small park where you can come and relax and enjoy. There are also a couple of places and I've got a small kiosk where you can relax in the shade right in Rizal Park. In addition, a link to a variety of attractions in the vicinity please feel free to browse in the relatively short time.
