Landmark in Napindan,Taguig City,District 1
Parola was built in 17th century. It stands guard at the mouth of Napindan Channel where the Pasig River crosses with Laguna Lake. Its location, at the navel of Laguna de Bay near the mouth of the Pasig River, flanked by the mountains of Rizal, the province of Laguna and several cities of Metro Manila, ensured its crucial role during the 1896 Philippine Revolution. This centuries-old lighthouse became the secret rendezvous point of the Katipunan as it planned its revolution for Philippine Independence. The Parola was chosen by KKK Supremo Gat Andres Bonifacio as a meeting place because it was the most accessible channel from Tondo, Manila and from the Municipios along the Pasig River and the Province of Laguna.
