A quick visit to Rizal Shrine in Dapitan

Rizal Shrine Dapitan
The Rizal Shrine in Dapitan was the place where our National Hero was exiled by the Spaniards in 1892. Today, the José Rizal Memorial Protected Landscape shows his life while working as a doctor, sculptor, farmer, teacher and many others. He 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 and was declared as National Park in 1940 by President Manuel L. Quezon.

The physician's chair. 
As a doctor, he treated mostly poor patients not only from this place but also from the neighboring provinces. One of tis patients is his mother.

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

HOW TO GET TO RIZAL SHRINE, DAPITAN: Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines have their regular trips to Dipolog Airport. If you're from the nearby provinces, you can ride in a Rural transit bus or UV Express van at any terminal to Dipolog Integrated Bus Terminal. Here, take another bus to the destination. READ: SOLO-BACKPACKING IN ZamBaSulta, Region 9, Misamis Occ.
