  • Large field, exceptionally treated and arranged, American administration, where are placed crosses reminding about of 37 000 us soldiers killed in the Philippines in World War II, in clashes with the Japanese. There is a residue of trash throughout the extensive field. In the galleries are inscribed the names that it was possible to ascertain those who lost their lives in the clashes. On the walls are the diagrams of some naval battles that occurred with the Japanese in the Pacific Islands. There is a small place of worship where they are side by side the flags Philippines and American. Around the field extend new financial and residential neighborhoods of luxury of (Bonifacio, Makati and Magellan), which contrast with the old and degraded areas of Manila. Is a memorial of killed in wars, similar to other scattered a bit by several continents
