Even if my husband was hesitant to visit this place, I still insisted for the sake of my children. My father was a seafarer, and when he comes home, mama would usually fetch him in Manila and we tag along.

In the cultural bleakness of Manila just about anything is worth a look but this is exceptional - a virtually intact 500 year old fortress big enough to contain a small town including a church 450 years old.
