Pulang Lupa Historical Park | Things to do in Torrijos-Marinduque

Located in high in the mountains of Pulang Lupa, this park offers a sweeping panoramic view of the eastern seaboard of Marinduque. The bloody gun battle between the Filipino revolutionaries led by Col Maximo Abad and the American Volunteers led by Capt. Deveraux Shields resulted in one of the very few victories won by the Filipinos over the Americans. The Americans officially admitted their loss as recorded in the American War Archives. Today an obelisk, a NHI marker, and a concrete retablo marks the place.
