Paco Park Manila

Paco Park is a national historical shrine located in Paco Manila Philippines. It was originally planned as a municipal cemetery for the well-off and established aristocratic Spanish families who resided in the old Manila, or the city within the walls of Intramuros during the Spanish colonial era.It was completed shortly after the cholera outbreak of 1820, 1822 to be exact.  Nine of the niches here were donated by the city of Manila in grateful acknowledgement of the services of the Dominicans to the victims of the cholera.

There is Mortuary chapel at the center of the park where the mausoleum of Governor General Ramon Solano Y Lladeral is. The remains of the Philippine National Hero Jose Rizal Y Mercado were interred here from December 30, 1898 to December 29, 1912. The remains of the three martyred priests Mariano Gomes, Jose Burgos and Jacinto Zamora ( GOMBURZA) were also buried here.

The burial or interment at the Paco Park ceased in 1912. The descendants of the families then transferred their ancestors to another location. It amazes me to see the circular walls of the park adorned by niches and the top of the walls made into pathways for promenades.
