Pindangan Ruins remains to be a tourist destination in San Fernando although not much to see except the exact ruins of the church. Best to visit the same time attending a mass in the church

Very old fort ruins now under the care of the Carmelites who live in the nearby monastery, the Pindangan ruins are a must see if only to imagine how life must have been in those olden times

There's not much to see plus you can't go inside. It's not along the main road and there's no sign to point you where Pindangan Ruins is.

Suggestion: Bring a guide or read up before you go. It does offer a nice, quiet garden environment and great photo ops for couples doing prenuptual photoshoots. There is a small church nearby and small religious gift shop.
