It was 10 and an half years ago when I walked down this very aisle. And visiting it today brought back a lot of pleasant memories of that momentous day of my life when I vowed to spend the rest of my life with my other half.
The rest of the trip was spent exploring the whole park which I didn't get the chance to do back then. For an entrance fee of P5.00, or was it P15, one gets to tour the park freely and leisurely.
There are two circular concrete walls surrounding the park dividing it into a central area and an outer circular lane where the crypts are. These two areas are connected by several archways.
The inner wall is also a walkway which offers a great view of the park below.
We climbed the inner wall and enjoyed the view.
Another spot worth visiting was the burial ground of our three martyred priests, Gomez, Burgos and Zamora.
But the highlight of our trip was the visit to the spot where the remains of our national hero, Jose Rizal, was temporarily interred.
It was a temporary retreat from the maddening hustle and bustle of the city outside.
Hubby and I just wandered around by ourselves appreciating the serenity of the place while we took photos untiringly to our hearts content despite the summer heat.
