“Do you know what’s worth fighting for?
When it’s not worth dying for?…”
One of the historical places that I have visited in the Philippines is the Corregidor Ruins in Cavite. Transportation that goes directly to Corregidor Island from Manila is via Sun Cruises Ferry. For Day Tour Package: P2,200/adult and P1,250/child inclusive of roundtrip transfers, terminal fee, entrance fee, tour guide and buffet lunch. For Night Tour Package: P2,000 on top of the day tour rate inclusive of room and breakfast for two.
Also known as “The Rock,” it served numerous functions throughout the years such as being the citadel of defense, a penal colony, and satellite for trade and custom.
“When it’s time to live and let die
And you can’t get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You’re in ruins…”
Going here relive the memories of war dating back from the Spanish Era, to the colonization of the Americans, to the invasion of the Japanese and up to Philippine liberation.
Erected for Japanese soldiers who served and died on the island
At present, Corregidor Island serves not only as a memoire of our distant past but also as an important tourist spot of our country.
“One, twenty-one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty-one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I.”
(21 Guns, Green Day)
