“Little gem in the heart of Manila”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Visited this fort during a private tour organised by my hotel, and it did not disappoint. Beautiful scenery, informative history (in English) and had a nice little cafe for food and beverages. Would definitely retur.

“A good place but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

There's nothing much to see here. Nevertheless, the place is old but it's awesome. Still, you have to go to this place if ever you are strolling around in Intramuros.

“A piece of Philliphines Histroy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

It will take you around 30-45 for this visit around the Fort for a real good look at it and understand it, to enter 75peso per person. Good only if you like historical buildings and history. If not is it just waste of your time.
