Create an itinerary including Fort San Pedro
A triangular stone block fortress with an impressive wooden gate, Fort San Pedro guards the entrance to Cebu with two of its sides facing the sea. Dating from the mid-16th century (with the present-day structure built in 1738), the fort remains the oldest and smallest stronghold in the Philippines. Explore the Virgin's Well and cannons on display in the palm-dotted courtyard, and climb up the three stone watchtowers overlooking the sea and the streets. A museum within the walls exhibits old photographs and sketches of the fort, and documents show its shape in the past and the founding of Cebu. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Cebu City trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • It's a historical place.
  • There is not really much to see really, but it sure is a nice place to chill. It kinda makes you feel a bit like you're back in 1800's. I recommend coming here late in the afternoon when its not too hot anymore.
