Tadpole shapped, it lies of the southwestern tip of Batan Peninsula, 26 miles off Manila.

It rises about 450 feet sea level with a land area of three and a half square miles.During the Spanish era, the island was a fishing village replete with a lighthouse and signal station through which all ships entering and leaving Manila Bay had to stop, thus earning it the name "Corregidor" which means "corrector."

When the Americans came, a hospital was built for wounded soldiers. In 1906, because of the strategic importance of Manila and the Bay, the Americans built a full-scale fortification on the island, equipping it with long-ranged and tractor-drawn guns, minefields and anti-aircraft guns.

During the last Pacific War, Corrigidor became a theater of war between the Japanese Imperial Forces and the combined defenders of Filipino and American troops, thus, its valiant last stand against the superior invasive forces came to be written in history. The occupying forces, however, were to be vanquished upon the return of the Americans in 1944.

On October 12, 1947, Corregidor was turned over by the US Government to be Philippine whose flag was hoisted in place of the American flag, witnessed by President Manuel Roxas. The Filipinos regained final ownership of the island fortress.
