HEROES SQUARE

Heroes Square believes that bringing stories of Filipino heroism to life and celebrating Filipino heritage can enlighten people and lead them towards personal, social, and national transformation.

EXPERIENCE HISTORY COME TO LIFE

For students, our tours are co-curricular enrichment programs that aim to form the entire person, and not simply impart information. For foreign guests, balikbayans, and the general public, we offer tours that excite and inspire the heart, the imagination, and the spirit.

Heroes Square tours feature multimedia and theatrical shows presented in various sites in Intramuros. These include walking tours, plays, dance, music, living history, and more.

By showing that the world of our heroes is still the world we live in today, Heroes Square aims to move people to see the Philippines with new eyes, to ignite dreams of greater possibility for the Filipino. By showing that our heroes are people like ourselves, with lives like our own, Heroes Square aims to embolden and empower everyone into realizing that we, too, can be heroes.

Heroes Square has been active in supporting the Intramuros Administration (IA) in its endeavors in bringing back vitality to the old walled city. In March 2011, Heroes Square joined the Intramuros Tourism Council (ITC), initiated by the IA and is composed of members of the private sector in Intramuros.

Heroes Square has also been working with National Historical Commision of the Philippines (NHCP) in their efforts to make the public aware of Jose Rizal’s 150th Birthday Celebration, as well as participating in the different Rizal-related activities of the commission. The NHCP has acknowledged Heroes Square’s Rizal@150 Tours of Intramuros as one of the official events during Rizal’s Sesquicentennial celebration.

The Department of Education has also given Heroes Square accreditation for its Educational Tours.
  • It’s a journey that’s not just about getting on a Tranvia or hearing some beautiful music or watching a play. It’s about nation and history, and the possibility of taking home some heroism, the kind that might just be about keeping the heart open to the unjust and unfair, and knowing that you have to speak of it, regardless of how times have changed.
