“Well kept and informative.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

kept the history alive with the footsteps of the national hero jose rizal and his little museum that housed his paraphernalia and enlarged replica of his novel noli me tangere in spanish and with translations in many languages for the tourists sake.

Old historical site in Manila. Been here for so many times because this is always a part of our itinerary during educational field trip.

“Historical greatness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

The place is small, average but Its worth going, if you dont have anything to do in Manila, learning something about the original city wall and historical facts is educational.

Don't forget to explore the actual walls, you can walk to some of them.

Also, in the area are two Cathedral, The Manila Cathedral and San Augustine, that you can visit, both are walking distance.
