Fort Santiago is one of the oldest military construction in the center of Intramuros. The entrance is 50 peso, open time 9.00-17.00. It’s comparatively small fort and only takes around 1 hour to view all corners. Strongly recommend to visit if you are historians or...More

I enjoyed walking around the gardens and the fort. I didn’t have any small notes and they let me in for free even though the cashier was counting a lot off 100 bills. Thought that was strange.

I’m disappointed in this historic site. I imagined something “real”, and finally I saw a newly replicated. Only part of it is considered as original. Most part of it are replicate, and not really impressive.

Good park area. Has a lot of history about Philippines’ national hero. It would have been nice if they took better care of some other areas in Fort Santiago.
