Tourist Attraction

The Rizal Shrine
This is the major historical landmark of the city. It is the original estate of national hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal which he acquired by purchase during his exile in Dapitan from 1892 to 1896. The Rizal Shrine is approximately two kilometers from the Dapitan City Hall. Its land area has been considerably restored to its original size of 16 hectares with the reclamation of 10,974 square meters.

Casa Residencia
A preserved structure of the main house which served as Rizal’s residence with his mother, sisters, close relatives and neighbors in Laguna had stayed with him in Dapitan. It is one room house encircled with a veranda, which is Japanese inspired. It is situated at precisely the best spot the feng sui would dictate: standing in a slightly higher ground than the flat lawn, open to the sea view in front but full protected by the hill behind. A simple comfort room connected by wooden planks is found at the rear.
