Manila can be an affront to the senses, but Rizal Park provides a tranquil oasis amidst the mayhem. Named after national hero José Rizal, who was executed by the Spanish colonial government for his fight for independence, the park features a large bronze monument to commemorate the site of his execution. Today, this popular picnic spot also boasts an open-air concert hall, restaurants, and dozens of fountains.
