A historic park with a grim past, Plaza Cuartel in Puerto Princesa was a Spanish garrison taken over by the Americans and later by Japanese forces during World War II. Nearly 150 American soldiers were burned alive towards the end of the war. Today, Plaza Cuartel commemorates both the survivors and the fallen servicemen during this bleak page in history.
