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.

  • Good to spend time here, take some photos and enjoy the history. We paid 60 for the entrance and they offered free tour guide. What a shame we didn't catch her name. She gave us so many good advise to visit the city and also travel information. Overall it's a good place to visit

  • We only had a limited time here so I guess it's best to take your time roaming around. The place is so big. They have a gallery where you can learn the history. There are paintings of the important people in the history. A must visit place when you come to Cebu. Make time. 😀

  • There is an entrance fee to access the interior of the fort. It is a very small in comparison to others but still a nice place. You cannot really see the ocean from there as buildings have come up. We spent like 30mins in there.

  • A very historic place. This is the first and oldest walled garrison/fort that the Spanish conquistadores built when they arrived in these Philippine Islands. A very nice place for family picnics on clear days and lovers' rendezvous on cool and cozy nights.

  • This place appears as one of the must do thins to do in Cebu in some places. In my opinion there is not much to see. I believe the fee was 20 pesos or so... Anyway if you like history this place might be a bit of interest for you but definitely nothing to be amazed with.
