Kawit, Cavite, Philippines
The town of Kawit is home to the country’s most historic window where the Philippine Independence was declared on June 12,1898. Now converted into a balcony, the famous window forms part of the Aguinaldo Shrine, which used to be the family home of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. Another local institution, albeit of more humble form, is a small foundry five minutes away from the shrine that still produces handmade knives and blades. Foundries were once a thriving industry in Kawit, hammering out bolos and swords used by local fighters during the Philippine Revolution.
