Because of the order to destroy the village and its church, the image was transferred first to San Nicolas de Tolentino then to Quiapo Church.Prior to the park, the marshy land was the location of a small town called Nuevo Barrio (New Town or Bagumbayan in Tagalog language) that dates back to 1601.The town and its churches, being close to the walled city, were strategically used as cover by the British during their attack.To the west is the reclaimed area of the park bounded by Katigbak Drive, South Drive, and the shore of Manila Bay.

The bronze-and-granite Rizal monument is among the most famous sculptural landmarks in the country.
