More popularly known to locals as Castillo Shrine, the Aklan Freedom Shrine is a memorial and historical park built in honor of Gen. Francisco del Castillo and the XIX martyrs of Aklan who sacrificed their lives for Philippine freedom.

After a visit and a photo shoot in the Aklan Freedom Shrine, it is a must to proceed to Kalye Kulinarya sa Kalibo (KKK), the newly launched night food strip located in Veterans Ave., just adjacent to the Aklan Freedom Shrine. This is where you can enjoy local foods and delicacies! There are acoustic performances every Friday and Saturday nights.

Every March 23, commemoration of the 19 Martyrs of Aklan held in the Aklan Freedom Shrine. A parade starts from the town plaza and end on this shrine, believe to be the grounds where the martyrs of the revolution against Spanish government sometime on 1898. Community parade, program and show of the event of revolution. A local holiday, a great show for tourist and historical buff.

I happened to pass by this shrine and it is an extremely normal shrine. Perhaps, you can take a few pictures as a reminder that you have been to and have visited Kalibo before. Nevertheless, this shrine is very well kept and very clean too.

Let's call this shine a beautification effort by the city of Kalibo to dress up an intersection where three roads come together; that'll keep expectations in check. This is not a place that I would go out of the way to see, but it was on my walk from my hotel to the downtown area. The actual shrine is fenced in with wrought iron. Kudos to the city for keeping the shrine clean. This is one of those spots where you'll just spend 30 seconds pondering the meaning, snap a picture, and then probably move on. It's very close to the Jollibee and the Ati-Atihan County Inn.

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.

Even the drivers don't know where it is... We have difficulty locating this place, and once there, nothing to do... Probably a photo-op then go somewhere else..
