Owner description: This fort was built in the early 1700s to protect against Muslim raids.

Very small. This fort should have been opened to the public for free instead of charging P30 per person. What a rip off. I should have bought food instead. This place is so small that I was able to walk around it in just 10 minutes. Not worth seeing.

It is in the same style of the forts you will see in countries the Spanish conquer, like Venezuela, Colombia and some islands like Puerto Rico.
It is small but is a great sample of the local heritage.

Parts of this fort have been damaged in the earthquake but most of it is still intact and the intention is to rebuild it. It's well worth going to look at the many old photos on display which detail the history of Cebu and the lives of the people.

I visited here shortly after the October earthquake and despite some significant damage, found it an interesting visit. It was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city and was a nice patch of flat, green in the urban jungle. Had an english speaking tour by a student for a very small fee and felt it was a good way to learn about Philippine heritage.
