The Rizal Shrine in Dapitan City was the place where our 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. 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 this patients is his mother.

WHERE TO STAY: 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. 

HOW TO GET HERE: 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 Dapitan City.
