Jose Rizal Landing Site in Dapitan City

by - Saturday, January 06, 2018

One of the monument built for Philippines National Hero is located in Zamboanga Del Norte, Dapitan City. It was one of the historic moment in Philippine history where Dr. Jose Rizal landed on the beach of Sta. Cruz on the night of the 17th of July 1892 in Dapitan City. He was escorted by his captors, the artillery men and Captain Delgras and presented him to the Military Governor where he will live life to exile. This park with gold sculpture of Rizal was opened to the public 117 years after the actual event.
