Did you know that Jose Rizal and the three martyred priests, Fathers Mariano Gomez, Jose Burgos and Jacinto Zamora also known as GomBurZa were buried here in Paco Park?

After our lunch at My Kitchen at The Oasis Hotel just right beside Paco Park, I decided to visit the place.

There’s no fee! You only need to register your name, address, email and contact number/s before entering the park.

Paco Park is surrounded by trees and plants that give coolness inside the park.

You will be transported back in time, though some of the structures were replica of old structures. While walking, you will notice a beautiful chapel at the mid-end center of the park called St. Pancratius Chapel. Aside from the chapel, some of the must see inside the park are the grave of Jose Rizal where once he was buried and GomBurZa’s grave.

Some were doing a pre-nup shoot, studying, practicing their lines and having picnic inside the park during my visit.

By the way, the chapel is accepting schedule for weddings.

Do you want a (not really) scary place to visit this upcoming Halloween? Why not visit Paco park, formerly a cemetery?

Before entering you need to pay 10 pesos which is a reasonable price considering they need to maintain this humble park that hides from city pollution and is surrounded by tall buildings of Manila. The place was really nice because it is walled by stones like those in Intramuros. I was really surprised that I found and stood in front of the remains of the GOMBURZA in this park. The church at the center of the park was really special. I was surprised that it is still being used for weddings and for celebrations of the Holy Eucharist. It was closed when we visited but I heard what's inside is magical.

The park was big enough to cater several visitors and student. Yeah, there were students there who did paintings, practiced plays, and those that polished their dancing. It is really a good place to chill. The trees that surround the whole area reduced the humidity that day. Worth the visit for those who hunt relaxing historical place here in Manila.

Last thursday we celebrate our 18th at Paco park. There's a reason why I choose this place and I think this place was the perfect venue for the last "✔️" on our 2015 bucketlist. The place is historic and old. Perfect for Instagram posts. It's also refreshing to see such scenery in manila. That time we are the only people in the place so we have a lot of time to make ourselves crazy. Hahaha

Nice for an afternoon walk. The small church is beautiful inside. There's an entrance fee of 10p on weekdays. I'm not sure if you have to pay too when you go there on Saturdays, but it's free on Sundays.

I like the airconditioned church and the fountain. Sometimes scary especially if its night or dark hours because of the cemetery. But still nice. I still remember our highschool days because we had our speech choir here 9786128076
