General Leandro Fullon National Shrine


On March 13, 1877, General Leandro Fullon, a revolutionary leader and the liberator of Antique during the Philippine Revolution, was born in Hamtik, Antique.

General Fullon continued to struggle for freedom and independence during the Filipino-American War. He surrendered to the Americans in 1901 after his forces were weakened due to heavy casualties.

After the civil government was organized, he was appointed Provincial Governor of Antique, a post that he held until his death on October 16, 1904.

A shrine in honor of General Fullon with his life size statue was erected by the Philippine National Historical Institute at the public plaza of Hamtic, Antique, which is now, a revered historical landmark.
