Description


The La Loma Catholic Cemetery (Campo Santo de La Loma) was opened in 1884 and is located mostly in the city of Manila and the northwestern part to Caloocan. Spanish officials warned Filipino rebels that once they joined the uprising, they can no longer be buried in Catholic cemeteries on the consecrated ground like La Loma and thus denied of what then was considered a “decent” burial in their time of death.
Campo Santo de La Loma is one of the few sites that escaped ruin during the 1945 Battle of Manila which destroyed most of the city’s architecture.
