Originally an arsenal and an underground hospital, its unique location beneath the Malinta Hills made it ideal bombproof headquarters for embattled Filipino and Americans, and served as the seat of Philippine Government under President Manuel L. Quezon.



We experienced a good half-hour thrills of Malinta Tunnel in a vividly staged Light and Sound show (Php 150.00 per person as of 2003).


Scripted by the late Filipino film director Lamberto Avellana, the show is a reenactment of World War II's dramatic event.
