Guiguinto was another that had lingered from the opening of the Manila to Dagupan railroad, and is slightly larger than most of the original buildings. The station is a historical landmark – if it still stands – and heritage site for the Bulacan region. It was here that the Katipuneros (Filipino guerillas during the Spanish Regime) ambushed a train from Dagupan, killing six friars, including the parish friar of Guiguinto, Fr. Leocadio Sanchez, and a Spanish doctor. The building is still being passed off as a tourist attraction, however now at least two thirds have been demolished, with a remaining stub in cleared land. There was talk of clearing the left overs away and rebuilding elsewhere, however at present not much else is known. Any updates would be appreciated. A most interesting gallery of photos can be found at
And it is greatly appreciated to be able to use some of boy’s photos here.
