The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), together with the College of Saint Benilde, Center for Service Learning and A. B. Photography, will open the “PUENTES: Bridging Lands through Bodies of Water” at the Museo El Deposito in the City of San Juan on15 February 2020, Saturday, 2:00 p.m.

Since ancient times, bridges have been constructed not only to ease travel and transport of goods, but also to connect communities separated by rivers and gorges. The first stone bridges in the country were built during the Spanish period, becoming lasting colonial legacies that changed the urban and rural terrain of the Philippines.

This exhibit features the historical significance of these stone bridges, particularly in Metropolitan Manila. The history of how each bridge was constructed gives us a glimpse of the beginnings of a systematized way of public works in the Spanish Philippines, and brings to the fore the engineering and labor forces that contributed to the nascent development of the country’s infrastructure.

The NHCP is the national government agency mandated to promote and preserve Philippine history and heritage through its administration of national shrines, museums, research and publication, conservation, and marking of historic sites and structures.
