My family moved to Calamba Laguna immediately after my 6th grade graduation.
During exams, my high school friends and I usually stay in the shrine’s garden in between test schedules. I was reminiscing those high school days as I strolled along the shrine.
Here are recent photos of the Rizal Shrine in Calamba, Laguna. This is a replica Jose Rizal’s birthplace – his parent’s house.
I found his famous quotation under the walkway from Rizal’s well going to the stairs.
