There are many exciting activities to look forward to in HistoryLand.
Historical Reenactment Show
A part of the HistoryLand, there will be five historical reenactment shows this August in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. These five shows are some of the most important parts of our history.
The Battle of Mactan
HistoryLand will first bring you back to 1521 where the Filipinos first fought against the Spaniards — the Battle of Mactan. You will witness how Data Lapu-Lapu defended our land against the Spaniard troops led by Ferdinand Magellan.
Execution of Jose Rizal
Next will be the execution of the Philippine national hero Dr. Jose Rizal. He was known to be the one who ignited change and inspired our countrymen to fight for our freedom, which we now enjoy today.
The Cry of Pugad Lawin
Also known as the start of the Philippine Revolution, this was the time when Filipinos were encouraged by Andres Bonifacio to tear their cedulas as a sign of their defiance against the Spaniards. During the reenactment, they will let you participate by giving you a cedula which you will tear into pieces later on.
Making of Philippine Flag
Flag is a symbol of freedom. Did you know that every color in the Philippine flag represents a Filipino trait? In fact, it underwent a lot of revisions before it became what it is today. In HistoryLand, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourselves in the making of this authentic Filipino symbol.
