For Filipino standards the fortress and grounds are in remarkable shape. There is a display of some artifices and photos from the old days. The inner garden looks well maintained but I suspect it would be more a plaza for goods and stockpile in the Spanish era. It's a fortress after all.

Very accessible tourist spot and is popular among tourists visiting Cebu. It is also a popular venue for wedding receptions. Hopefull they can fully reconstruct the damaged portions after the 2013 earthquake.

I had heard about this monument before visitin Cebu, but little prepares you for its excellent preservation and place in the history of Phils. its a magnificent, but small, fort close to the water front of Cebu. I understand that it first constructed of wood when the Spanish arrived following Magellan's discovery on his round the world voyage. Its interest... More

My photographer decided to take our prenup photos at Fort San Pedro, I was hesitant at first but then when I saw the actual photos they were just spectacular. If you are planning to have a vintage theme for your prenup, this is the perfect place for you. Although there will be a lot of spectators because there are a... More

I went here with my boyfriend when I was in college. The entrance fee is cheaper when you're a student. We enjoyed the historical touch of the fort. There were also old canon heads. Very interesting. It is small though. There are also benches where you can sit and enjoy the view.

The Fort was a nice place to visit and relax while the kids run around the grounds. Its triangular shaped and in two levels whicb you can comfortably go through at a leisurely pace in 45 mins. While we were there, a wedding was being celebrated on the central garden so it was a bit crowded but also festive. Not... More

If you see this fort from outside it is enough. Inside nothing to see. Just ver very small but very clean fort.may be one of the smallest fort which was built by Spanish people.

You can spend about an hour or even less in this historic fort in central Cebu. Fees are cheap. It's really just a small triangular structure dating back to the Spanish colonial era.
