 The main landmark of Caloocan City, theBonifacio Monument is located at theintersection of Rizal Avenue and EDSA. Themonument commemorates the mostproletarian of all Filipino heroes, AndresBonifacio. The monument likewise marks thefirst encounter between Andres Bonifacio andhis revolutionary group called Katipunan withthe Spanish soldiers on August 3, 1896. Themonument was immortalized by the greatFilipino national artistGuillermo(Botong)Tolentino in 1933 togetherwith Guillermo Masangkay, one of Bonifacio'sgenerals adapting the facing of Bonifacio'sStatue towards his birthplace in Tondo, Manila,which is situated on the south of Caloocan.
The Andrés Bonifacio monument with the 45-foot pylon and figures cast in bronze is locatedin Caloocan City, Metro Manila at theintersections of Samson Road, McArthurHighway, Rizal Avenue and Epifanio de losSantos (EDSA) Highway. It is also the start of theline for the Light Railway Transit (LRT) thatbegins at the Monumento Station and leads allthe way up to Baclaran Station in Pasay City.Bonifacio Day is a National Holiday in thePhilippines and is celebrated on the 30th of November (his birth date).This "Monumento" was designed andcompleted in 1933 by the country's NationalArtist for the Visual Arts (Sculpture) in 1973,Guillermo Estrella Tolentino.It is his sculptural masterpiece portrayingnumerous figures around an obelisk thatincludes events leading up to the formation of the revolutionary group named "KataastaasangKagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ngBayan" or Katipunan/KKK for short led byAndrés Bonifacio.The three steps leading to the monumentrepresents the three centuries of Spanish rule(333 years), while the octagonal base with the 8rays of the sun from the Philippine flagsymbolizes the eight key provinces (as writtenon the surrounding pavement) where MartialLaw was first declared by the Governor-Generalwhen the Katipunan held major uprisings thereagainst the Spanish authorities - the verylocation of this monument actually depictingthe place of the first such encounter by AndrésBonifacio and the Katipunan with the Spanishcolonial army on August 3, 1896.
