Been coming here since my childhood days. Definitely a great place to visit to understand the history with Dr. Jose Rizal. Love walking through the free museum and learning more. Reasonable entrance fees. Beautifully maintained!
I enjoyed visiting the area with my friends. The experience is worth trying. The surroundings are beautiful and reminds a lot of the colonial days. Most buildings look antique with a little touch of modern. You will find that the locals are pleasant and always want to help. Overall experience was 100%. Best to have a little knowledge of Tagalog.
Fort Santiago should be on your list of things to see in Manila. As of March 2018, admission is only $1.50 U.S. Besides Fort Santiago, there’s various other attractions within walking distance. Fort Santiago offers a good history lesson, lively atmosphere, views of the river, & various shops. Definitely an I i retesting place to visit.
Absolutely love it! Took me back to time to experience the bygone eras. So much of Philippines history lies on this place. If you visit, take out adequate time to know, understand and feel the history. That's how you give your respect and appreciation.
When I came here during Family day, they offered free admission and tour guides would go with large groups for free, too. I think it was just by chance but if you're buying souvenirs, check out the gift shop closest to the exit (it's inside a building) not the outdoor ones. They have excellent quality products :)
It has been a few years since the last time I visited Fort Santiago but as I remember, it is a pretty impressive structure. I do like to visiting old forts, castles and temples. For me it always feels good to actually walk around in and imagine how it was in the days, when these buildings played a much bigger role in people's lives. I sort of like to think of it as walking in the footsteps of history. I am sure that I took some photos here, so I will try to find them. Maybe a return visit would be good.
Very historical structure. Beautiful site. Not a crowded place as well. It's a must visit place if you are in Manila. Still the pride left behind the great Fort. It covers vast area. So historical. Can take lots of pictures around the area.
A must see for history buffs and those exploring Manila. The Jose Rizal museum location on the complex is a must-see and very well curated. You can explore the fort, visit the chapel, and take in the history in just over an hour. Drink plenty of water if exploring on a sunny afternoon.
This is a nice place to do activities such as jogging, practicing a dance or choir in a group. You can also do picnic. The best place to watch the beautiful sun as it dawn and if u get tired there is "Kalesa" for u to ride to take a tour.
Went here why'll on holiday loved it, took lots of photos of the fort. Also took photos for other tourist. Take some water if you are going for a while.
A nice place to spend a lazy early morning or late afternoon. At noontime, not so much. Although the place offers a lot of shade, global warming is sure to get you. At any rate, it is still a nice place for a leisurely walk and/or picnic with loved ones. If you don't fancy the restaurant near the entrance, you can opt for the restaurants outside, just across Manila Cathedral. There have been improvements in the site for the last few years, and while some new sections were renovated and opened, others were closed for renovation. But that's expected of any historical site with moderate to high tourist visits. An audio guide of the site would be helpful.
A wonderful place for an evening stroll and a fascinating history lesson on Manila and the Philippines. The view along the river (pictured) is nice as well. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area!
Historical places are always fun to visit and there is so much history here. The entire area is very nice and well taken care of. Spend a few hours here and take everything in.
Great historic place with rich past and well maintained. Worth a visit to connect with the philippines past. Much recommended. Entrance 75 pesos per adult
