  • Worth a visit here of Jose Rizal-national hero. Obrazovannejshij was a man, scholar and writer. Tells the story of his family, about his education and creativity. Surprisingly, was even a photo of his execution.

  • Jose Rizal or Hoseh Rizal as it is pronounced by Filipino people. Nice information and many statues showing all the period of Rizal's life. The letter he wrote to his family. A nice place to visit. 
  • This also has quite a bit of history for the Philippine people. From artifacts to some of his doctors instruments.
