Cebu History

This is a great historical site to visit if you are interested in the history of Cebu. The fort is well kept and very inexpensive for a tourist attraction.

This is a nice respite from the heat and noise of Metro Cebu City. The buildings house a small Art Museum and a Photographic History of Cebu. If you are "history-oriented" and read each photo description, this is a very interesting 60-minute attraction.

Visited and spent 1/2 an hour walking within the fort. There is an entrance fee and most of the sights are within the area. The fort is well maintain and nice if you are into the history of Cebu!

It's next to Ferry port that you can by foot 5 munites. It's only 30peso and maybe not original but nice to see inside of building.フェリー乗り場の隣にある公園でマニラに戻るまで飛行機の時間があったのでフェリー乗り場から歩いて行きましたが簡単に行けます。30ペソで入れます 中はオリジナルではなさそうですが整備されます。

Just take few pics. There's an entrance fee but not much to see inside. It is just worth going once.

The inside is lovely and well maintained with a garden. Nice view from the walls. Lovely park outside. Some interesting displays telling you about the history of Cebu. The kids will probably be entertained for long enough for you to have a quick walk around as it's not very big. Very cheap and not busy and in walking distance to... More

This place is old and historical. The lobby has paintings and historical facts that will give you an idea about the history of the fort. Inside you'll find another bunch of paintings and historical facts, artifacts, and canons. We're quite unsure if you can view the ocean from the walls on other regular days because when we went there, the... More

Me and my friends went here on our last day in Cebu. It is just a walking distance from the hotel we were checked in. It was lovely. Their museum is full of the picture of the past. You can see there the picture of Magellan, Lapu-Lapu, The picture of the old cebu. It was indeed worth to go here... More

It served as the nucleus of the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines. During the Philippine revolution at the end of 19century, it was attacked and... More
