Formerly a barracks for Spanish artillery soldiers, this building was where Dr. Jose Rizal, the Philippines' National Hero, was imprisoned prior to his execution on December 30, 1896. It was here that Rizal wrote his deeply moving Mi Ultimo Adios (My Last Farewell), which his family later found concealed in an oil lamp. The shrine houses various displays of Rizal memorabilia, including books, manuscripts and artworks, which give the visitor an insight into the life of the great intellectual and patriot. Admission is free with entry into Fort Santiago.
