Built in 1661, the Estacion de Guiguinto (Guiguinto Train Station) is the towns most acclaimed historical landmark and heritage site. It was upon this site that the Katipuneros (Filipino guerillas during the Spanish Regime) ambushed a train from Dagupan, killing six friars, including the parish friar of Guiguinto, Fr. Leocadio Sanchez, and a Spanish doctor. The incident inspired Severino Reyes to author the novel “Opera Walang Sugat” which was later made into a movie entitled “Walang Sugat.”

Really? Is this a misprint for 1861 or does the building date from the early Spanish period? If the latter then what was its original purpose?

Either way, it looks like it is worth visiting next time I am up your way. Best of all would be to be able to again visit by train.

thankyou for showing these interesting pictures
