People in Southern Philippines Reminisce Nation’s Hero’s Life in Four-day Festival

DAPITAN, Philippines — Just like most treasures, this city, with its quiet streets and tree-shaded groves leading to sloping gently beaches, hides a trove of Filipino heritage and history.


The history of this city spans over 700 years, from the arrival of the first native Subanon settlers who were soon joined by the Boholanos to the coming of Spaniards and later the Americans. In the 1700s, this small town was under the rule of Spanish government. In 1892, the city became the home of exiled hero Dr. Jose Rizal, until his departure in 1896.
