Cemetery Tourist Spot
Pay tribute to thousands of Americans and Filipino military personnel at Heroes Cemetery, a resting place for these World War II soldiers. When you visit this monument, you will mainly see the graves of those fighters who fell in May of 1942, as well as those of people who died on the battlefields of the Allied Liberation of the Philippines between 1942 and 1945. This attraction, which also contains the national Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, was founded in 1947 as the Republic Memorial Cemetery. President Ramon Magsaysay gave this site its current name in 1954, and it is considered the national counterpart to the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial.
