Unique among Manila's landmarks, Paco Park is quite possibly the only one of its kind in the world. A former cemetery, the construction of which was completed in 1820, it consists of two circular structures containing tiers of niches (now empty) that were once used for interment. On top of both stone structures are galleries along which the visitor can take a leisurely stroll to better admire the tranquil beauty of the park. A National Historical Shrine, Paco Park serves as the venue of Paco Park Presents, a yearlong series of free concerts/cultural events held every Friday evening.
