The Stone Altar is the centerpiece in the main hall of the Dome of Peace. This edifice was designed in such a way that a portal at its apex allows the sun to shine through. At a certain time during the year - particularly on May 6 (the date of Corregidor's fall), the sun projects a disc of light that illuminates the top of the Stone Altar. In the distance is the monument of the Eternal Flame.
