Plaza Cuartel - Puerto Princesa City

Plaza Cuartel is a former site of a Japanese garrison. It is located just a few yards from Our Lady of Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral

This place has witnessed a dark history of Palawan's past. 143 American soldiers were burned inside a tunnel during the Word War II. It serves as a Memorial Park in honor of local heroes, and American soldiers.

Plaza Cuartel may look like an ordinary park with towering trees and benches but it's a proof of a grim past. Many were burned alive but eleven prisoners were able to survive and escape the mass execution.

This memorial marker is erected as a grim reminder of the realities of the waging war.
