    Nearly all historical sites around Intramuros Manila are closed for now , during to coronavirus restrictions...

    It was still interesting to walk around the streets inside this historical Manila location

    The place was great, the area was smaller than i expected though, my expectation was the whole town have these old houses and structures but turned out it was just the street of Calle Crisologo.

    It was like time traveling because of that ancient old traditional vibe. People are kind by the way. We stayed at a small inn or hotel (Calle Crisologo) and i was stunned on how they preserved the house. Me and my wife enjoyed our visit.

    We took a guide and a jeepney to get here and it was well worth the money as we wouldn't have found the location we ended up in by ourselves. Very beautiful on a clear day.

    We took the option of 3 days trek (Banaue-Pula-Cambulo Day 1, Cambulo-Batad and waterfalls Day 2, Batad-Banaue Day 3) with Jercy Cabbigat, whom you can find easy on Messenger.

    The trek was quite doable, with some slippery places if it have rained, and can be hot sometimes. But, the knowledge, the sens of humor, the caring and helping of Jercy truly beat all that !

    We recommend 100%, the views are truly amazing and it’s nice to walk there with someone who can explain and share the daily life of this part of Philippines !

    At a young age i was able to visit and see the beauty of calle crisologo. I was stuned to see the structures of the old Hispanic wealthy spanish families living their life before. it was good that they were able to retain the beauty of the place, and you'll be able to see the famous cobblestone streets that represent Vigan's image.

    Nice quite place to sit a while. I sat a while and my deeply seated view that in war there are no winners was reinforced. 100 000 civilians dead in the battle for the liberation of Manila. One hundred thousand who had no interest or part in the war.

    The barbarism of the occupation is depicted in the National Museum of Fine Arts (among other places) in a painting Rape and Massacre in Ermita by Diosdado Lorenzo - look at that painting and link it to this place. This park is sacred to the memories of those who suffered here and are depicted in the artwork I mention. The close link is inseparable as is the suffering of the Filipino people.

    Let this quiet park aspire all to understand the futility of war. Important historic location in the heart of Manila.

    The monument placed here serves as the starting point of the Death March in 1942.

    This can be easily accessed upon arrival in Mariveles since it is near the bus terminal and Jollibee. Anyone can access this place because there are no entrance fees for this place. Here, you will see the marker and a monument with a short detail of the events.

    I was impressed that it was well-maintained and free of any vandalism. This place is indeed a place to visit in Mariveles.

    If you’ve been to Cape Bojoedor and wasn’t given a chance to have the lighthouse by yourself, go here and that dream will be fulfilled.

    A century old light house which was part of the group of lighthouses during the Spanish colonial period.

    If you are coming from Masbate City, it is an hour ride to Aroroy, go to the Port of Aroroy and hire a fisher’s man boat to bring you to Bugui Point (2 hours boat ride.).

    The lighthouse is abandoned but still beautiful. It has some similarities with the other Spanish lighthouses, rustic feel and great for photo shoot.

    Historical old bridge over the creek/ estero. Spans the banks of Veronica St. and Alvarado St. A short cut from Ongpin St to the malls and Divisoria vise versa. Made of concrete with metal railings, in the daytime you can prominently see informal settler (Alvarado St. side) (or the remnants of what was a colony) at night a flicker of lights punctuates informal human dwelling. The creek is now dead and reeks of methane and or noxious fumes, somedays are stronger than others. Despite being an old bridge, a little history is know about its origins, besides that it stood witness to the backyard where Jose Rizal remains were interred in a mansion across it (now gone and replaced by a high rise building). A note of warning, watch your step when crossing the bridge as it is littered with dog excrement. #RP

    A tribute to a fallen hero of the the "Battle of Binakayan". A statue and a historical marker place on a raised gated shrine, which occupies almost half of the road beside Mary Magdalene church. Could be better and for the safety of the onlookers the shine could have been place in a much safer place that is free of traffic to enjoy the history behind the shrine.
