This procession became one of the biggest Marian procession attracting foreign tourists and balikbayans. The holding area was the the entire Magallanes drive , since parts of Fort Santiago is being rehabilitated unlike in the previous years.

Saint John of Bosco

I think this is a good idea , since Magallanes drive is bigger and more people can view the images .

Since it will take a long time to upload photos , here are just some of the Marian statues from different parts of the country.

NUESTRA SEÑORA DE LAS SALERAS

The town of Aliaga used to be part of the province of Pampanga, before  In 1848, Gapan, San Antonio, Cabiao and Aliaga were segregated and made part of Nueva Ecija. It was on the 8th of February 1849 that Aliaga was formally erected as town.

 The name “de las Saleras” was associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary because of the miraculous event.

devotees from Aliaga, Nueva Ecija

The Spaniards in search of new colonies in the pacific usually affix a holy image in their shipping vessels. The image of the Blessed virgin or the “Sto. Niño” were commonly placed to serve as a guide and a patron, and also to introduce the Roman Catholic Religion.

We were given some estampitas with some salt ( for blessing and cleansing ) by some of the devotees.  The estampitas is also one way to spread the devotion to other people who might not be too familiar with these images / representation of the virgin mary .

Grand Marian Procession 2015

Fort Santiago, Intramuros – Manila, Philippines

It was a hot sunny afternoon past 2:00pm when our group arrived near the Plaza Roma within the heart of Intramuros.

Roads that lead to intramuros were closed – Magallanes street , Aduana street aka Andres Soriano street are lined with concert barriers . There is a high mass at around past 4:00pm where there are several dignitaries and high church officials in attendance .

Manila Cathedral and Plaza Roma

The main plaza- Plaza Roma is colorfully decorated with bamboo arch and festive buntings. The electric and cable wires around the plaza had been removed by the Intramuros Administration and with the help of MERALCO and other telecommunication companies.  This makes the area ideal for photography without the electric cables and wires .

Security was strict compared to last year . Plant boxes and concrete slabs were neatly arranged to form a barrier along the main street. The adjacent streets were closed to traffic and people had to walk several meters just to queue to the parades routes.

Puerta Isabel 2 Gate : Colored Postcard

Quezon City, Philippines

I was invited last year in an auction/ bourse meeting of the Banknote Society of the Philippines ( BNSP  founded in 1980) general monthly meeting last year held at the club house within New Manila, Quezon City .

There were a lot of amateurs , young professionals and old- time collectors .Unlike stamp clubs, which held their meetings , auctions , lectures and walking tours past 12:30pm.  The  club  pre-auction is held usually in the morning and auction / a short lecture after lunch time.

At their pre-auction/ bourse normally starts past 10:00am and extends until past 12:00nn where one can see and inspect items for sale in the afternoon. There are more than 600 items for sale . There were several tale bourse / dealers selling some old stuffs and collectible items from old toys, photos, stamps, coins, banknotes , antiques , reproduction photos and postcards.

Puerta Isabel 2 Gate postcard

Two particular items stood out ,  It was an pre-war Puerta Isabel 2 gate and a vintage 1980’s  Saint Jude Catholic School postcard . Since i knew the dealer selling the items, She gave me some discount on both items for sale. It was not a substantial discount . Never least, I was able to buy some items and would show them off to visitors during the postal tour or during show and tell portion whenever i got come chance getting invited in some schools to talk about the beautiful landmarks of Manila.

I also happen to buy some vintage photo reproduction of Escolta, Pasig River and Post Office . Initially , it was Php 50 per photo. Using my haggling skills and a little it of persuasion , It was reduced to 3 for Php 100.

Puerta Isabel II was the last gate to be opened for pedestrian traffic in Intramuros in 1861 . There used to be a tranvia line which enters the gate via Magallanes street ..According to Dr. Ambeth Ocampo ( noted Filipino historian ), Because no Spanish monarch had ever set foot on the islands, indios and Filipinos alike where kept entranced by the magic of royalty through elaborate celebrations held in Manila every year for birthdays of the king and queen of Spain; their daughters (the infantas); the crown prince (principe de Asturias); and assorted titled relatives.

When the British occupied Manila , The wall was breached with cannon fire when they occupied the city in 1762.

Puerta Real

The original Puerta Real is a Royal Gate were stately processions is held . The gate was built in 1663 at the end of Calle Real de Palacio (now General Luna St.) and was used exclusively by the Governor-General for state occasions. It was located west of Baluarte de San Andres and faced the old village of Bagumbayan. It was destroyed during the British invasion of 1762 along with the removal of the village. The Puerta Real was rebuilt in 1780 and moved further west to its present location. During the Battle of Manila, the gate was damaged. Now this place is popular among students as some sort of lovers ground, place to relax, events and wedding venue .

It was open to the public under the Bureau of Science .The public aquarium is notable for its collections of fresh water fishes some of which are found endemic to the country . It is not only a tourist attraction in its pre-war days but also a research facility for captive breeding of some native fishes.  The aquarium was closed during the war and was badly destroyed . It reopened in the late 1960’s but again closed its doors in 1983. The current revival dates from 1998 to mid- 2011.

Acuario de Manila

The aquarium, renamed Acuario de Manila in 1998 , displays a fascinating diversity of marine life in tanks set against the old adobe walls of one of fortifications along the walls of Intramuros . It was again closed for public viewing and most of the glass tanks and aquarium are nowhere to be found.

I still remember that the entrance is is just Php 50 for the general public and Php 20 for students and senior citizens with valid ID’s . But i think the aquarium met its untimely closure with the opening of a much bigger and more popular Manila Oceanarium at the back of the Luneta Grandstand.

Puerta Isabel 2 Gate and Monument

 Puerta Isabel 2 Gate was the last gate within Intramuros to be open for pedestrian traffic in 1861. Due to the increasing trade and commerce between Intramuros , Binondo and San Nicolas district . Hence the colonial government had to open new gates for the public. Puerta Isabel 2 was the gate traditionally used by students of the Colegio de San Juan de Letran from Spanish times, until it was alternately closed or opened at long intervals. Until the Americans decided to create a new gate, the Quezon Gate fronting the college main entrance. It had a regular tranvia route by 1890’s which enters its gate.

Monument to Queen Isabel 2 of Spain  The monument is called by many acronyms such as  ” Reina de Lakwatsera ” , ” Manila’s  Most Traveled Statue ” , “Palipat-lipat de Estatwa”, Señora de Lakwatsera” , ” Manila’s Most Celebrated Statue ”  among others. It is made of bronze and was funded by donations collected from the city in 1854 and 1855 by Spanish sculptor Mr. Ponciano Ponzano  was commissioned to do the work or traje official with one hand holding a symbolic key and the other a dagger by her chest. The finished statute was shipped to Manila was slightly different from what the queen has ordered . The image shows the queen gloved right hand was slightly different from what the queen has ordered .The image held a piece of paper with a text dated 1854 .

It was erected amidst festive ceremonies on 14 July 1860 near Teatro Alfonso XII in Arroceros in what is now Plaza Lawton (Liwasang Bonifacio). The grand procession then collected the archbishop of Manila who celebrated a thanksgiving mass in an open air altar  near the statue . After the mass, military , religious and secular officials gathered at the old Plaza de Arroceros and watched the Governor-General Ramon Maria Solano y Llanderal pulled a cord to unveil the statue  .

Three ” Vivas” were followed by full military honors . While during the evening , music and dances filled the Plaza Real within the walled city , where a public ball was held to end the festivities . The whole unveiling ceremonies cost the Spanish government a total  a whopping Php 3,000 !,  Php 1,800 went to the grand ball , Php 800 for the decorations and Php 100 as a prize for the ” Best Photograph ” of the event. The Unveiling ceremonies was the ” grandest celebration among the statues erected in Spanish colonial rule” .

  After her ouster in 1868 ,   It was not long before he set on removing the remnants of the old regime in Manila. The task of destroying the monument was given to Señor Bartolome Barretto, a government official. A sympathizer of the Spanish crown, he refused to carry out the task. Chinese workers were hired to remove the statue and Barretto hid it in his house before the Ayuntamiento ( Marble Palace )  reclaimed it. The Sociedad Economica de Amigos del Pais (Economic Association of Friends of the Country) requested that the statue be made part of their museum collection but de la Torre consigned it to a storeroom in the Casas Consistoriales.

The statue was brought out and erected in front of the Malate Church  in 1896. It remained there for over half a century until in 1970 when it was blown down by Typhoon Yoling aka Typhoon Patsy . The monument was transferred to its present site during the visit of Prince Carlos of Spain in 1975.

Kawayang tinik (Bambusa blumeana Schultes)

Before we end the exciting tour,   Our longest stop over was at Fort Santiago  .There is a bamboo garden that is found in the former archeological excavation area .

We were treated to some horticultural knowledge by our tour guide, One of the main materials use in making of the bamboo bike is our very own kawayang tinik ,  kawayan tungkan,  torny bamboo ,  spiny bamboo a  fast growing bamboo species that is found in many areas of the country. The bamboo  grows a dense clump with thick thorns at the bottom part.  The clumps height around 15-25m young clump is waxy at young and become shiny green when mature. 

 Buddah Belly’s Bamboo (Bambusa ventricosa) with ugly graffiti

Bambusa ventricosa most notable for its unique clump growth when containerized in stressed conditions. The clumps will bulge and swell, giving it the name “Buddha’s Belly”. It is native to China and  was introduced to the tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world . Filipino landscapers had introduced this foreign species to beautify the landscape and very popular among backyard growers especially the Chinese for it is a good feng shui for gardens and brings prosperity.

Visiting public must always remember that those bamboos are also living ‘things’ and must not  left their ugly graffiti marks.

Fort Santiago gate

Fort Santiago- This is the oldest part of the walled city, some historians said that it even pre-dates the founding of the walled city. It is where the ancient kuta ( wooden palisade ) of Rajah Sulayman at the mouth of the river. When the Spaniards took Maynilad , They built a fort from the ruins of the old Muslim fortification.

Postigo de la Nuestra Señora del Soledad (Postern of Our Lady of Solitude ).

Don Simon de Anda y Salazar escaped via this small opening  during the height of the British occupation of the walled city .  The Real Audencia also appointed Anda as Lieutenant Governor and Visitor-General. That night Anda took almost half  of the treasury and official records with him, departing Fort Santiago through the postern of Our Lady of Solitude, to a boat on the Pasig River , and then to Bulacan. He moved headquarters from Bulacan and to Bacoloor , Pampanga.

memorabilia items

The fort is one of the most important historical sites in Manila. Several lives were lost in its prisons during the Spanish , American and Japanese rule.

Dr. Jose Protacio R. Rizal was imprisoned here before his execution in 1896. The Rizal shrine museum displays memorabilia of the hero in their collection and the fort features, embedded onto the ground in bronze, his footsteps representing his final walk from his cell to the location of the actual execution.
