The Balcony of Sinners

At the far end of the family wing of the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite, Philippines, is an azotea that Gen. Emilio F. Aguinaldo fondly referred to as Balcony of Sinners. He called it such as it was where Revolutionaries plotted military strategies against the Spanish authorities. The Balcony primarily served as the family lounge on lazy afternoons.
