My World#71 Jose Rizal's Laguna Home

June is the birth month of Philippine's national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. Thus, I'd like to feature his ancestral home in Laguna where he spent his childhood days. A scion of influential Filipino-Chinese businessmen, Jose Rizal, had a happy childhood in this family home.
