Designed by the Spanish Basque engineer Matias Menchacatorre and completed in 1852, it was the first steel suspension bridge in East Asia and the first toll bridge of its kind in the Philippines.

From poles apart, a love that was in bloom was set back then. The complex relationship between the two countries continued until both were faced by the prospect of fighting a common enemy in  WWII. Would fate now be kinder to another love?

The fort is one of the most important historical sites in Manila where many lives were lost in its prison during the Spanish colonial period and during World War II under the Japanese occupation. During the American colonial period, it served as the headquarters of the U.S. Army in the Philippines.

The OFI Library  is a Philippine study center with a collection of nearly 21,000 books, serials, images, and documents relating to Philippine history with some dating back to the 17th century.
The OFI Library produced mobile photo exhibits of Filipiniana imagery of various themes which are brought to different schools, universities, local museums, churches and other public venues in Manila as well as the provinces. Interested parties may request for these exhibits. Other exhibits featuring original library materials from the collections are held within the foundation premises.
The foundation also hosts conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and other interdisciplinary events. The seminar and conference rooms provide the venue for our educational and cultural programs. These rooms are also available for rent for cultural, socio-civic, as well as corporate activities.
