“Small and quick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Its part of the 75 php you pay to get in to Intramuros. Take your time and look at everything. My fiance and I spent about 3 hours at intramuros.

“If you didn't know Jose Rizal before...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

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.

“the place to know more about the Philippine's National Hero”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

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,

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

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.

“An Amazing Man”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

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.
