It is nice to know your history and the heroes who died for us. Going to fort santiago is educational. They also offer film showing to further enhance our knowledge of the past!

If you love history in general, this is an excellent place to visit. This is a known place during the Spanish regime and still preserved. But I advise everyone to be aware of the 'kalesa' ride (horse-driven carriage) offered outside. It is so expensive...rip-off!

We were charge Php 75 each to enter the Fort. You might get a discount if you’re taking your students for a tour. It’ll be best if you contact them ahead of time plus get a curator to give you the tour. Enjoy!!!
