Plaza Cuartel (Puerto Princesa)

Posted by admin on September 26, 2007

Former site of a Japanese garrison, it is a few yards from the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral. 143 American soldiers were burned inside a tunnel during the World War II. It serves as a Memorial Park in honor of local heroes, and American soldiers.

  1. Hi, I have some pictures of Plaza Cuartel that you might want to use on this site. I’ve written a story on an American POW who recently visited it, and it was featured in the Philippine Daily Inquirer. Here are the links:
