Throwback: Corregidor Island Lighthouse, Philippines

Corregidor is an island in the entrance of Manila Bay. Due to its location it was fortified as a defense point from attacks of enemy forces. It especially played an important role during the invasion and liberation from Japanese forces during World War II. It is also home to the lighthouse. Opened in 1853 by Spanish colonizers, it is a stone tower with two balconies. It has guided many sailors for centuries. Today, it is one of the attractions in Corregidor Island, giving visitors a glimpse of the Philippines’ past.
