#MtSamatCross

Mt. Samat, along with the fortified Corregidor Island, had been the site of the most vicious battle in 1942 against the Japanese Imperial Army. On top of this mountain, a memorial shrine complex marked by a giant cross was built in commemoration of the gallant Filipino and American Soldiers who fought during World War 2. The height is 92 meters which symbolizes the 92 days of that war that has been fought.

Until now, it is the second tallest cross in the world. The tallest is the Holy Cross of the Valley of the Fallen in Spain.
