Biyaheng Bonifacio (Part 3): Quezon City Trail

In the continuation of Biyaheng Bonifacio trail, I decided to go back to Metro Manila where I will visit two more historical sites in Quezon City. 
The welcome arc of Krus Na Ligas.

1. Krus Na Ligas
Brgy. Krus na Ligas, Quezon City

The first site that I visited is the Krus na Ligas. It is now a barangay in Quezon City which is located near U.P. Diliman. In this barrio, the group of Bonifacio rested in the area. Katipunero Genaro delos Reyes was sent to Mandaluyong to inform the chapter about the encounter with the enemy.

2. The Cry of Pugad Lawin
Seminary Road, Brgy. Bahay Toro, Quezon City

Fifteen to thirty minutes away from Barangay Krus Na Ligas, I visited the Bahay Toro, a site where the Cry of Pugad Lawin was located. Over 500 Katipuneros gathered at the warehouse of Cabesang Melchora Aquino (Tandang Sora) on August 23, 1896 and tore their "cedulas." They carried assorted weapons: bolos, spears, daggers, a dozen small revolvers and a rifle used by Lieutenant Manuel for hunting birds. This event started the Philippine Revolution which was held in August 26, 1896 in Balintawak.
