Writings on the wall

Is there a need to deface properties just to profess ones love, or just to show that one has been to a particular place? Saw this one at Fort Santiago in Intramuros while I was acting as chaperon/tour guide for my Spanish niece and her friend.

It is kind of an embarrassment to the country when we are promoting tourism and this is what they would be seeing in one of our tourist attraction. I hope that when the Queen of Spain visited this place, she didn’t see this particular wall. The blame does not solely fall on the government office in charge of the upkeep of this tourist attraction but to all who wrote on this wall and those who stood by and did nothing to stop it.
