A heavily fortified island at the mouth of Manila Bay, it is the best defense the country has, way back year 1941. Corregidor is known for its war wrought barracks and buildings, artillery and terrains, tunnels and artifacts that witnessed horrible events that signaled the fall of the Americans against the Japanese forces. We all know by now what a Japanese soldier holding a Bayonet does to anybody, quite macabre.
Different mortar batteries are present throughout the island.
As well as skeletal ruins of buildings/barracks that once housed the American forces will be seen as you go along a guided tour aboard the common mode of transportation in the island: a Tranvia.
Memorial markers that honors the American and Filipino soldiers who served during the World War II are also present. Moreover, a Japanese Garden of Peace facing Japan is erected in memory of those who has fallen during the war.
The siege of Corregidor has left the Spanish Lighthouse of the island damaged. It was built in 1850 and is perched at the highest point in the island.
Malinta Tunnel: An elaborate network of tunnels run through the mountain, sheltered many of the soldiers during the war, became a makeshift hospital deep into its laterals.
Rekindle the flame of the historic freak in you.
