Old Train Station
Guiguinto, Bulacan
Historical, Heritage
Built sometime in 1896, the Estacion de Guiguinto (Guiguinto Old Train Station) of the Philippine National Railways is the town's most acclaimed historical landmark and heritage site. It was upon this site that around 200 Katipuneros fought for the cause of Filipino freedom led by Capt. Inocencio Tolentino. They ambushed a group of Spaniards on the night of 27 May 1898, including the parish friar of Guiguinto, Fr. Leocadio Sanchez, who brought cruelty to the natives in his regime. The incident inspired Severino Reyes to author one of the most famous zarzuela in the country "Walang Sugat" which was later made into a movie in 1939 and 1957.

Feedback:   The use of train in the Philippines started on November 24, 1892. According to your historical account, the old Guiguinto railway station was built in 1661.

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
