Fort Santiago witnessed real horrors during the Philippine Revolution and World War II. Before rising as one of Manila's prime destinations, the chambers of Fort Santiago served as a cell for prisoners and their misery. Ghost hunters might hear the echoing screams of prisoners in the dungeons.
Fort Santiago is a historical place located in Intramurous, Manila City. You will find there various stories about how Jose Rizal fought for the freedom of our country. If you want to learn more about the Philippines, this is one of the best place you can visit.
This area is one of the most important historical sites in Manila. Several lives were lost in its prisons during the Spanish Colonial Period and World War II. José Rizal, one of the Philippine national heroes, was imprisoned here before his execution in 1896.
The entrance is P75 for adult and P50 for students/senior/PWD. It was nice that it’s cloudy when we arrived in the area and there are only a few tourist and guests at that time.
Upon entering the gate, you’ll see a wide park. And as you go along you’ll see the entrance to the fort.
