Perhaps the most thought-provoking sights in Corregidor are the many RUINS there. The bombed out structures are a harsh reminder of how awful it must have been there during the war. One of the Ruins is of Mile-Long Barracks which was officers' quarters (housed as many as 2000 American officers) and quarters for Senior Officers. There is also Middleside Barracks Ruins and the Ruins of the Theater.
You can just picture these concrete building and how they were once bustling with activity. You can even see the stairs, most of which still remain.
To the left of the Philippine War Memorial are the ruins of CINE CORREGIDOR which was a movie theater. It was erected during the pre-war period to entertain personnel and their families. Nothing much is left of the building except portions of its concrete walls.
To me, this was one of the saddest reminders of the War. Once it was a happy place and now it's just a bombed-out shell of a building.
The plaque underneath this sculpture reads:
"Dedicated to the Filipino who knows how to die for love of Freedom and Liberty"
