About Fort San Pedro, Cebu City

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.

Fort San Pedro, Cebu City Reviews

  • So beautiful inside and outside. It was nice walk around the fort. Easy to notice. The enterance fee was 30 pesos. We can sit around in the upper part of the fort. So beautiful and well maintained. There is also a covered area for people to eat and rest.

  • Nice place with good surroundings, restaurants and supermarkets around. Beautiful spots for taking pictures, low entrance fee, great rooms with relevant and informative historical information.

  • Ok if You like wandering round forts. Thick walls, cannons stuff like that. A room also with some history regarding Spanish colonization.

  • Been there twice already, in 2012 and 2018. The place has shown minimal change except that it offers guided tours. A good place for photo ops and to imbibe a piece of Cebu's rich history.

  • Nice to see that Historical places like this was preserved and hoping that this one will still be available for the next next generation. Together with the progress of the city, hope that we Cebuanos will still be able to look back the historical and old style of Cebu. There are few traditional piece that is still preserved also pictures of how Cebu City look like before.
