Gabriela Silang Monument
This monument of Gabriela Silang was created by Jose M. Mendoza in 1971. Gabriela Silang was the first Filipina to lead a revolt against Spain. She was born in Ilocos Sur on March 1, 1731. After the murder of her second husband, Diego Silang, she led his troops in a policy of harassment that earned her the title of “Generala”. Outnumbered she fled to the mountains where she was captured, and after a summary trial, hanged publicly in Vigan on September 20, 1763.
