If you've ever wondered why Dr Jose Rizal is the national hero of The Philippines, check this place out - they have his clothes, personal effects and writings from his prematurely ended short life.

Your visit to the fortified walls (Intramuros) of Manila would not be complete without seeing this Shrine.

This Shrine is fortified complex dedicated to the lifework of José Rizal is located on Santa Clara Street, Fort Santiago, Intramuros, Manila.

This houses the building the Philippines' national hero spent his last night and where his family later found concealed in an oil lamp, the famous poem Mi último adiós (My Last Farewell).

The shrine exhibits Rizal's various memorabilia such as the shells he collected in Dapitan, books, manuscripts and artworks belonging to the prodigious and multifaceted Rizal.

A portion of this Shrine serves as a venue for theatrical performances such as those presented by PETA some years back,

Located in Fort Santiago. Offers a good background of the country's democratic path. We noticed many school and college students visiting this place which speak volumes of how they respect this hero.

We were on a day tour and learnt so much about this great man. His house is quite small, but he was quite amazing, supported by an equally amazing wife. A must see, but you will get so much more from you visit if you have a guide with you to tell you about Rizal. We went with the Filipino Travel Centre. We booked a day tour which included the Rizal Shrine.

The shrine is within Fort Santiago area of Intramuros and is definitely worth a visit. I didn't know much about Rizal, their national hero until I visited this shrine.
