The City of Manila on Monday opened the Lagusnilad Underpass, providing weary pedestrians a colorful tour in murals of the capital's rich heritage as well as a tribute to the country's modern heroes -- health workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The underpass has attracted selfie-seekers seeking to refresh their Instagram and Facebook feeds with things other throwback travel pictures. From Rajah Solaiman to Jose Rizal the murals chronicle Manila's place in history.
Mayor Isko Moreno said the underpass was meant to provide the public tangible proof that governments are working to provide something useful. He also warned vandals: "Kung artistic sila, sana wag dito dalhin ang pagkaartistic nila bring it somehwere else (If they are feeling artistic, don't bring that here, bring it somewhere else.)
