Manila, Philippines: pt. I

Sculptures in Rizal Park, commemorating the December 30, 1896 execution of Filipino nationalist and hero of the Philippine Revolution against the Spanish, Jose Rizal.

The English translation of Jose Rizal's last words.

Rizal Monument.

Manila Bay.

A building inside Intramuros (literally meaning "within the walls"; i.e. 'intramural' sports are within the walls of a particular institution), a 16th century fortress built by the Spanish. The 'walled city' endured attacks by Dutch, Chinese, and Portuguese pirates, the British, and the Japanese, among others for hundreds of years, surviving till this day with the aid of restoration efforts.
