Philippine Historical Landmarks
From WikiPilipinas: The Hip 'n Free Philippine Encyclopedia
The Historical Events knowledge database discusses the list of significant episodes in Philippine History. In relation to this, the country has hundreds of locations remembered for their historical relevance, and as such are called Historical Landmarks.
A landmark is defined as a position of a prominent or well-known object in a certain area or location. However, for the purpose of this knowledge database, by landmarks we mean "a building or any kind of structure known for its historical significance." Our list includes sites of battles, national shrines (e.g. ancestral house of prominent historical personalities), churches and places of worship, fortifications, military camps, among many others.
This knowledge database aims to generate recognition among the people of the many historical sites in the Philippines. They are not just tourist attractions; more importantly, they serve as fitting tribute to the momentous events that occurred and the people who took part in these defining moments of Philippine history. In addition, the Historical Landmark category advocates the protection and preservation of these historical and cultural sites as part of the country's heritage. In the process of appreciating these historical landmarks, there is also a heightening awareness of the Filipino national identity.
