It's a little known fact that Jose Rizal has monuments all over the world. Sure, you may know about his plaque in Hong Kong or a monument dedicated to him in Spain, but we doubt you knew he had a lot more than that (so much that it's pretty much impossible to mention every single one).

Rizal himself had several travel experiences. He made his way to Singapore, Sri Lanka, Yemen, Italy, France, Spain, and more. So, it's only fitting that the world remembered him for his intellectualism and political activism. From Hong Kong all the way to France, here's where you'll find monuments, landmarks, and historical markers featuring our national hero.
