Paco Park

Paco ParkThe Paco Park and Cemetery in the suburb of Paco in Manila is a peaceful site best known for housing a circular domed church called St. Pancratius Chapel. It also features old-fashioned gardens and a fountain. The bodies of the victims of the cholera epidemic of the year were assigned to the niches in the wall of Paco Cemetery, built in the year 1820.


The cemetery includes Ramon Solano y Lladeral, a former Spanish governor-general of the Philippines, and a host of the Bishops. Three priests, the Fathers José A. Burgos, Mariano C. Gomes and Jacinto R. Zamora were buried in this park for their suspected role in the Cavite Mutiny in 1872. The priests (often called Gomburza) inspired later Filipino defenders of independence, such as Dr. José Rizal, and are viewed by the Philippines as martyrs.
