The Cathedral and Plaza Cuartel

The white and blue colored cathedral, the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral in Rizal Avenue. 

Plaza Cuartel, located opposite side of the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral. A military fort in the past, a garrison of Spaniards, overtook by Americans and then by Japanese.

The dungeon, where American Prisoners of War was caged and burned to death by the Japanese. The eerie bunker but now closed to public view for safety reasons.

It was in 1997 when it was renovated and transform the place to a leisure park.

  A marker containing the name of eleven prisoners of war (POW) who managed to survive the horrible massacre on December 14, 1944.
