Andres Bonifacio Rotunda in Davao City


The “Handog ng Kapisanang Bayan at Wika sa Lunsod ng Dabaw” or commonly known as the Andres Bonifacio Rotunda in Davao City, Davao was finished in November 30, 1961 in honor of the founder and leader of the Katipunan movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule and started the Philippine Revolution, Andres Bonifacio. He was born on November 30, 1863 and died on May 10, 1897.

Headed by Jose D. Quitain, Sr. they see to it that the Andres Bonifacio Rotunda will be finished on the 98th birthday of the hero – I was wondering why they did not wait for 2 more years. Surrounding it are Museo Dabawenyo, Osmeña Park and station of the Philippine National Police (PNP). Nearby are San Pedro Cathedral, City Council of Davao, Rizal Park, City Hall and Quezon Park. The street going to the North is C.M. Recto Avenue, to the West is Father Selga St., and to the East is Pichon St.

It is not one of Davao’s main tourist attractions but if you want to visit the place, jeepneys going to San Pedro or Pinchon which can be caught along C.M Recto Avenue and several nearby streets.
