Fort Santiago, Manila Reviews - Write a Review
The last time I was here I was able to bring my dog all the way inside the Fort area (but not inside the museum of Jose Rizal). For that alone this place gets high marks from me! However some parts of the Fort look unkempt and run-down. But in general, it is a lovely park/museumand a wonderful place for photography. You can also really feel the spirit of our national hero as you walk through the place. There is a section where they retrace the footsteps of Rizal as he was taken from his jail cell to the firing range. There are permanent footprints in the ground. And a very lifelike statue of him helps you imagine what he must have gone through in the last minutes of his life. Very humbling. Advice to people who know nothing about the history of Fort Santiago: get a tour guide. Just ask the tour desk. Or read up online.
Fort Santiago-Intramuros is a great Historical site . A must see on a trip to Philippines. its from the 1500's. The Spanish originally built it, The British Japanese and American have all flown flags . Great piece of History
One of my favorite spots in Manila since I was young. I have a lot of memories in Intramuros and now reminds me of my youth. It showcases our history and particulars of the life and journey of our Jose Rizal. They also have free activities during weekends and best for families and friends for gatherings and relaxation moments.
An important piece of Phillipine history featuring tributes to national heroes and allies. This decommissioned fort is both instructional and a revered Memorial to Philippine history.
Philippines Heritage with Foreigners Some of the strongest trading, investing and influencing countries in Philippines were its former invading enemies based on a few wars in history: America, Spain, Britain, China, Japan and Arabia (not sure which specific Islamic country). This fort city is walled with Fort Santiago for Government administration and prison inside plus Jose Rizal, national hero museum linked with KKK a revolutionary secret army and society within Intramuros. The global and international minded will find this enlightening considering nationalism is trending towards peaceful methods rather than warring means for cooperation in mutual benefits. Note: all these foreign countries and their viewpoints should be included for the whole picture.
