The myth about Bernardo Carpio brought me here, trapped between two rocks or the two mountains. Perfect for quick rides just a few minutes away from Manila. Been here three times and I still love this place. So this is not my first time here as I write this review.. It all started when I was in college way back , it was our photography project where we need to have to take a good shot of nature anywhere we want. All my classmates declined to go here because they thought that it'll be boring but I went on without them.. Manila to Rizal would take you 50mins only if you know the traffic schedules in rizal area.
Bernardo del Carpio , also spelled Bernaldo del Carpio , is, since the beginnings of modern historical scholarship, a legendary hero of the medieval Kingdom of Asturias. In contrast with El Cid , he was not based on a real person and thus could be whatever the creator s wanted him to be. He was believed to be historical. Supposedly the nephew of Alfonso II of Asturias , stories feature him striving against Alfonso to release his father from prison. Other stories have him as the rival and slayer of Roland at Roncesvaux. Alfonso was not happy with the marriage, so he had Sancho blinded and thrown into prison and took Bernardo.
