Biak-na-Bato National Park
I live in the Philippines and its history interests me. On the 26th Feb. 2018 friends and I visited the province of Bulacan. Our first stop was the Biak-na-Bato National Park. Obliviously it is a large site and we only checked on the location, because we had other goals. But we made these few images at the entrance area.

Here is the history from Wikipedia:

Republic of Biak-na-Bato

The Republic of Biak-na-Bato (Tagalog: Republika ng Biak-na-Bato, Spanish: República de Biac-na-Bató), officially referred to in its constitution as the Republic of the Philippines (Tagalog: Republika ng Pilipinas, Spanish: República de Filipinas), was the first republic ever declared in the Philippines by revolutionary leader Emilio Aguinaldo and his fellow revolutionaries. Despite its successes, including the establishment of the Philippines’ first ever constitution, the republic lasted just over a month. It was disestablished by a peace treaty signed by Aguinaldo and the Spanish Governor-General, Fernando Primo de Rivera which included provision for exile of Aguinaldo and key associates to Hong Kong.
