bonifacio shrine


Located across Manila City Hall. The sculpture shows the selected period of Bonifacio's life and history.

Andres Bonifacio was a revolutionary leader of the Philippine Revolution against spanish colonial rule in the late 19th century. He was the founder of the Katipunan which aimed to start an independence movement against Spain.

Quite an impressive sculpture. Whether he was a goodie or a baddie, would be a matter for someones's belief.

Great Bonifacio. There's no way that a country well defined must be under control of another. Never.
