Plaza Cuartel is the restored ruins of an old garrison where Japanese soldiers burned 143 American prisoners of war inside a tunnel and stands as a grim reminder of World War II atrocities. Only ten prisoners survived to tell the story about what happened inside that tunnel. Today, a garden is being maintained by the Puerto Princesa City Government within its wallsl. Plaza Cuartel is located along Taft Street (near the Immaculate Concepcion Cathderal) in the City Proper area of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
