“Fort sAn pedro visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We somehow like places like museum and fort because it tells you a piece of history and you get to see how things like way back then.

We seen their old clothes, rooms, stuffs and even letters wrote by andres bonifacio. Amazing!

The fort is very well maintained, very clean and with very accommodating staff.

“Only for people with specific interests”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The grounds weren't particularly beautiful. The artifacts were mostly about Catholic history. If you don't have an interest in that field, you probably won't find anything of particular interest here. The area isn't large so it's good for about an hour's visit.

“very good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

these is the first place we visited when we went to cebu last oct 2012. because it is just a walking distance from our hotel which is sampaguita suites plaza garcia. the place is not that wide so you can easily walk all over the place. it is also neat and tidy. we love the old brick walls and the canon. the place is very good in picture taking also.

“Rustic Charm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

I went here on my own last Friday to catch some good shots of the place. Overall, the place is nice and well-kept. The only thing that made me frown during my trip is that a children's birthday party was held at the courtyard. Who celebrates his 1st birthday in a old garisson anyway?! I hope the Cebu government will stop allowing people to hold events here.

By the way, entrance fee here is now PHP30.00.
