RIZAL SHRINE AND MUSEUM: The life of Jose Rizal on display

Rizal Shrine Dapitan
The Rizal Shrine in Dapitan City was the place where Jose P. Rizal, Philippine National Hero, was exiled by the Spaniards in 1892. It was also the place where he worked as a doctor, sculptor, farmer, teach and many other activities. Rizal purchased this land after winning a lottery in 1892. Later, his mother, sisters and relatives transferred here from Calamba, Laguna. However, on January 15, 1897, all of his property was confiscated by the Spanish authorities. This property was converted into a park in memory of Rizal and was declared as National Rizal Park in 1940 by President Manuel L. Quezon.

I stayed at GV Hotel in Dipolog City, one of the cheapest and budget friendly place to stay in Dipolog City. For an overnight stay, I paid 600 pesos; the room has toilet and bath, single bed, cable tv, and an aircon. GV Hotel is situated in the center, thus, it is a walking distance to the Dipolog Integrated Terminal, food establishments, and banks.
