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. You can avail a number of deals and offers from our online ticketing section and get some nice discounts on Fort San Pedro ticket prices.

Fort San Pedro, Cebu City Reviews
The place was great. We paid for the entrance fee for 20 pesos since my friends and I were students, only if you can provide an ID. For the regular fee, it's 25 pesos. It's great for dates and all but make sure to bring food because they don't have food stands inside. The historical place has collections of pictures and paintings and historical things that connects to the history of civilization of the City of Cebu and during the colonization of the Spaniards.
The place is really preserved and appreciated. Very historical and something to be proud of during the Spanish Era. It is a perfect place if you are really into history. It's peaceful and relaxing. I just hope that the attendants could be more pleasing and hospitable.
This place is not great but also not bad. if you have some spare time you can come and visit. You will pay the entrance fee and after that you can take the tour guide which is for free. Told us some interesting information but most of the time when we asked some additional questions she said I don´t know. Interesting place to visit.
It was nice to explore Filipino history here. What struck me odd was that there are wedding receptions being held in the open air area of the fort. It was very loud and killed the atmosphere for me. Imagine studying historical texts and viewing century old antiquaries with loud bass boosted music and karaoke in the background.
There are some nice old pictures, cannons and historical explanations. Enjoyed the walk around, lots of tourists and locals as it is also part and parcel of a larger park. There is parking for motor bikes at PHP20 for two hours. Ask the parking guards where to go. It is also relatively close to Yap Sandiego Ancestral House. We used Google Maps to get from one to the other.
