Fort San Pedro - encapsulate Cebu's history

Fort San Pedro is a very lovely place and it encapsulate Cebu's history...

Let me inform all of you a little about Fort San Pedro...
Near the Cebu area sits Fort San Pedro, as a stately reminder of bygone era. Began as a wooden structure in 1565 and after a number of medications finally finished in stone in 1738, the fort is the smallest and oldest, tribastion fort in the Philippines.

Originally, the fort provided safe haven for people of the Spanish settlement, but the years have seen it used for many purposes, as a military garrison, rebel stronghold and even a zoo....!!!

Now under the jurisdiction and care of the Cebu City Local Government, the fort's walls and inner courtyard gardens provided a relaxing reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city.



  1. I luv Fort San Pedro. I often steal a glance on its way every time I claim a parcel at the Cebu Central Office. Hehe
