Plaza Cuartel was where 150 American soldiers were burned alive by the Japanese during World War II, specifically on December 14, 1944. Very few survived and they only lived because they were able to find a passageway that led to the river and to Iwahig. After the war, the remains of the dead were brought to and buried in St. Louis County, Missouri in 1952.
Afterwards, we headed to the church. We went inside and I said my prayers. Later, I took some pics.
And thus was how our city tour of Puerto Princesa commenced.
