Soulful reminder of the horrors inflicted upon the innocent Philippine population during WWII. If you are exploring Intramuros by foot, it's on General Luna Drive between San Agustin Church and Manila Cathedral, so is an easy stop. Worth a moment of reflection on lives lost.

Nice architectural piece. A memorial to those who sacrificed but were not asked to serve. As with all war, there are always casualties that were not meant to be.

We passed this memorial on our tour along with other monuments of interest. Which our guide pointed out and gave a brief history.

It's a small area located inside Intramuros, but for historical appreciation, it is worth seeing. Not to be missed if you're already inside Intramuros, either on your way tp/from Manila Cathedral or San Agustin Churst/Museum, or Fort Santiago. It's just steps away.
