Corregidor Island is of historical significance during World War II, as Manila’s military center located in the middle of Manila Bay. The tadpole-shaped island was fortified with sophisticated coastal guns and mortars, anti-aircraft artillery batteries, a school for servicemen, and an airfield. Until now, many American, Filipino, and Japanese war veterans and historians still go on a Manila city tour to visit Corregidor to relive what transpired on its shores. Corregidor Island attractions: Pacific War Memorial and Eternal Flame of Freedom. Every May 5th noon-time, the light falls perfectly on the sculpture’s Oculus, the time when Filipino and American troops surrendered after 72 days of bombing. A similar Japanese Garden of Peace was constructed for their Japanese counterparts. Malinta Tunnel. The last stronghold of the Philippine and American forces against the Japanese. It now has audio-visual storytelling of what transpired in the island. Corregidor Lighthouse. One of the oldest landmarks in the island that guided seafarers safely.

The Paco Park and Cemetery is a beautiful and quiet spot in the suburb of Paco in Manila. It is designed in a circular form -- in a structure of two concentric stone walls with a promenade on top -- with a rotunda church (St Pancratius) and old-fashioned gardens in the center. Built in 1820, the niches in the walls of Paco Cemetery received the bodies of the victims of the cholera epidemic of that year. A former Spanish Governor General of the Philippines, Ramon Solano y Lladeral, and a number of bishops are buried in the cemetery. Three priests, Fathers José A. Burgos, Mariano C. Gomez and Jacinto R. Zamora, who were executed in 1872 for their suspected role in the Cavite mutiny (a 19th century insurrection against Spanish rule), are buried in this Park. The priests (often referred to collectively as Gomburza) were an inspiration for later Filipino independence advocates such as José Rizal and are regarded as martyrs by the Philippine nation
