Visit the site where one of the most celebrated battles during World War II took place.
Guarding the entrance to Manila Bay lies Corregidor Island. This tadpole-shaped island, nicknamed “the Rock,” provided the first line of defense for Filipino and American soldiers against the invading Japanese forces during the WWII.
Relive history by partaking in the Malinta Tunnel Light and Sound Show, which chronicles the events that shaped the center of American operations during the war. Then visit the Mile-Long Barracks that served as the quarters of some 2,000 US officials, including General Douglas MacArthur. We’ll take a quick detour to the Spanish Lighthouse, which offers a spectacular view of Manila Bay and the South China Sea.
Additional sights include the batteries displaying the various guns from the time and the Pacific War Memorial, one of only two memorials built by the US government to mark the war.
