San Fernando: Old Train Station

An hour drive from Malolos, Bulacan, we reached the city of San Fernando in the province of Pampanga. We made a quick stop at the Old San Fernando Train Station, built in 1892 as part of Manila Railroad Co.'s Manila-Dagupan Line. Dr. Jose Rizal disembarked on this station when he visited San Fernando in 1892 to recruit members to the La Liga Filipina.

The Old San Fernando Train Station is part of the Lakbay Jose Rizal @150 travel program, in celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal.
