Batangas town’s hero and Rizal’s friend

BALAYAN, Batangas --- People may not have heard of Sixto Castelo Lopez, save for his family s ancestral home that stands across from the house of actor-director Leo Martinez on Kalye Putol in Balayan town, Batangas province. But to his family and older town residents, Lopez was a local hero whose patriotism spanned not one but two foreign invasions. Historical accounts have described him as a patriot and propagandist during the Philippine Revolution against Spain and the Filipino-American War.
