A tribute to Aklanon forebears, the first Katipunan movement outside Luzon who gave their lives to the altar of patriotism. The 19 steps adorning the monument contain the mortal remains of the 19 Martyrs of Aklan and atop is the effigy of Gen. Francisco Del Castillo, the leader of Katipunan revolutionaries in Aklan.

It is a waste of time to go here other than to pay respects to the men who died to help make the Philippines an independent nation.
