Aguinaldo Shrine

Aguinaldo Shrine is the ancestral home of our first Philippine President, General Emilio Aguinaldo.  It was first built in 1845 in Kawit, Cavite. It is the site of the historic Proclamation of Philippine Independence on June 12, 1898. It was declared the national shrine in June 1964 after the death of General Emilio Aguinaldo.



The shrine is currently a museum and it's open for public.




On the ground floor it has a secret passage and hiding places for documents and weapons, exhibits of flags, photos during the revolutionary era, and other scriptures.






The house was more likely a Spanish style where in second floor Aguinaldo's bedroom is located.  And the grand hall, dining room, kitchen, a conference room and azotea is decorated with an antique furniture and theme of nationalism.






Outside the house is the garden where in Aguinaldo’s tomb is located and you may also see the Aguinaldo Statue at the park.
