General Luna Street, Intramuros, Manila City, Metro Manila, Philippines

End your exploration of Intramuros where the Spanish walled city all began. This citadel at the mouth of the Pasig River was built in the early days of newly established Manila to guard against foreign invaders. Fort Santiago was originally palm and earth until it was finally built in stone, with intricate carvings and a European coat of arms adorning its gate. It served to keep out the unwanted, but also keep within its stone cells an incarcerated hero. Dr. Jose Rizal, one of the country's most prominent historical figures and widely considered its national hero, spent his last days here awaiting execution. His crime? Writing two novels, Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not) and El Filibusterismo (The Subversive), whose stories were critical of the Spanish regime. Trace Dr. Jose Rizal’s final steps as bronze footsteps trail his path from Fort Santiago to Bagumbayan field, now Luneta Park, where he was executed by firing squad. Many regard his life and work as a seminal point in Philippine history, leading to national independence. Intramuros remains a living city where the nation’s history is as tangible as stone and bronze. Locals and tourists alike flock to this walled city to unravel the nation’s story as it reveals itself through the remains of religion, politics, and militant force.
