Fort San Pedro - Review

Fort San Pedro dates back to 1565. Built as a defensive fortress under the command of Miguel López de Legazpi, the fort protected the city by Muslim invaders. The fort has played many roles; that of a prison camp, a mini zoo and now a handsome ruin. The views from the fort are spectacular because two sides of it are facing the sea.  A welcome getaway from the chaos of the city, the fort and its grounds are surprisingly peaceful and welcoming.

The history of Fort San Pedro is as important and fabulous as its architecture and terrific view from the top. You can get tickets for Fort San Pedro on the sport but that will probably waste your precious time in long lines. It is best to buy tickets for Fort San Pedro in advance or combine Fort San Pedro tickets with a variety of other tours and activities.

Fort San Pedro, Cebu City Reviews

  • I have a high standard of forts, coming from a state in India where an erstwhile king built fabulous forts commanding stunning views of the mountains and lakes of Maharashtra. That being said - San Pedro is beautiful. Very well maintained, lovely location, and friendly staff. And full of cats, that can never be a bad thing! Sure, there's not much to do here and if you're not into history, there's limited interest as well. But it's a great stopover for a few minutes even if you're the type who rabidly stays away from guidebook recommendations. I went during Sinulog eve, the place was bustling, with a concert happening in the nearby park. Gorgeous.

  • Tour guide is available on site for touring around the fort. We were toured by cute tour guide. He is very detailed to guide and provide us the history and relevant. His name is Charles. There are less things to see but the history told a lots about the structure and relevant sites. You guys should listed it as your Cebu city tour in order to get to know more about the history about the original tribe and evasion of Spanish.

  • Amazing! this camp is made from corals manually cut and shaped into bricks . Built by the Spaniards 15th century ago. Canons are still there, pointed toward the sea. Inside a mini museum with real pictures preserving the past. A female tour guide, guides you around showing the remnants, sharing the past (history).

  • When we got there, it was raining. So it was hard to get pictures outside. But the place was nice. I liked their galleries and also the grounds. There were not much to see in there as it was just a small fort.

  • Definitely a most included stop in Cebu City. A unique opportunity for those who enjoy history. This was the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines. The entrance fee is php 30 for adults. Take a couple of hours to enjoy this gem right there in the Queen city of the south.
