“Not a great deal here.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I first visited Cebu in 2009 and went to Fort San Pedro then. At that time I wasn't too impressed and nothing much has changed since then. However, it is worth a look.

“Ok if you have time to kill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Just a small fort, quite unimpressive, but you can kill some time there, we were stuck in cebu anyways, all ferries were cancelled because of an approaching typhoon

“Seeped in real history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is the real history of Magellan and his landing and occupation in Cebu. It is probably the most historical and best preserved site in the whole of the Phills. Its very well preserved and some of the pictures are amazing. I learned more here in one afternoon than I had reading all the historical books, Its located down by the main dock office near the centre of Cebu. Great bit of history!

“It got rocked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The place is still standing but you can see where the earthquake did some major damage. Blind musicians put up some good tunes and it's right next to aa barbeque. Must have been neat to see the ocean back then but now not so much and the canons are still there and all worth seeing.

I enjoy old historical sites so I liked it, It has a nice layout with beautiful gardens. Worth the stop if you're in the area.
