Fort Santa Isabel was constructed by the Spanish 350 years ago and still stands today. It was once surrounded by water but 20 years ago the local authorities reclaimed the sea around it. The fort is constructed from black rock, and has a small museum. A church stands in the center of the fort and some old cannons can also be seen.

Fort that dates back to 1667. A few cannons and a chapel is still intact. Takes about an hour or so by van from El Nido/Airport

We had a couple of hours here just enjoying the views, sitting and relaxing in the shade. We took some lovely pics as the trees and flowers were all in bloom. You can see the Taytay version of the Hollywood sign from here.
There is a very small museum with some history of the fort and surrounding area. A skeleton of an Irrawaddy Dolphin resides here too.
I guess the spanish used the "help" of the local people to build the stone fort, which can't have been easy considering the size of some of the blocks.
But it is a lovely and unexpected example of some colonial history in a place that is fairly tranquil and only about an hour to 90 minutes from El Nido.

Taytay, Palawan is a quiet town about an hour and a half away from El Nido. Fort Santa Isabel gives you a good learning experienxe about history and Filipino heritage. The Fortess is a little bit mysterious. There is a small museum inside with intriguing artifacts. You have to see it for yourself and experience it. There are little huts outside the fortress. It is a good site to appreciate the Local culture.

It was instructive to learn and explore the old Spanish fort in the old capital of Palawan - the city of Taitai. Nothing outstanding in my honest opinion. Quite interesting. Some variety

Nice place to stop by on your way to el nido. Quick stop would do to see the old fort and views from it.

Clean and well kept , clearly well looked after. The charge of 30 pesos seems to be cheap for such a place. It was nice to walk round .

Charming old fort in TayTay, 30 pesos to enter and definitely worth a look if you’re in TayTay. Lovely views of the bay.

While the city itself isn’t that great, the small fort for sure increase the experience of visiting Taytay. The entrance fee is 25 pesos, and the fort is well kept, which gives you that historic feeling. It is quick to see, and it is not what one might expect, but it is something you have to see when in Taytay.
