Fort San Pedro Cebu City.


Gate of Fort San Pedro Cebu City

Fort San Pedro is located inside Plaza independencia two blocks away from the Sampaguita Inn where we spent our first night in Cebu. We went to Fort San Pedro late afternoon, at first I was kind of reluctant to go because I want to visit it in a high day light aiming to get a nice photo. Despite of the time and nearly doomy surrounding my photo-shoot went well! Ha-ha NAKS!

Fort San Pedro was built from 1565-1738 through the labors of indigenous cebuano under the command of Miguel López de Legazpi and Spanish Government; it is the smallest bastion fort (per readings). Segway - for those who know me and have read about my previous post  would posibly notice my huge love or say interest for old stuff like ruins. When we entered the entrance my first impression was “mini Intramuros” disregarding the residence area, commercial building and schools.

Currently this fort is one of the famous tourist destinations in Cebu City. I personally enjoyed this place and one of the most interesting part was the museums where where some relics from war were kept and taken care of. The original writing of katipuneros was placed for public viewing (what I can say is – Andres Bonifacio’s hand writing is way better than mine hahaha).

I also find something that amused me much as fashion lover; it is an old cloth that was use before in war. Please allow me to discuss it on my next post; it is something that you may want to look forward to. For now just check if you are familiar of this flag.

Yeah that is an old Spanish flag that was taken by one of the crew members of Admiral George Dewey During the Battle of Manila Bay. There are still a lot of  interesting things inside but it is all for you to find out. We still have few hours left so we went up and see some gun emplacements; unlike the guns found in Corregidor and Intramurous the one's in here are smaller.

I like the view at the top which was converted into a park with some benches for who just want to sit, relax, enjoy the view and have some good chat.

Commuters Guide:

For those who want to visit Fort San Pedro, if your are around Magellan's Cross then it is already in a very walkable distance from where you are ( a couple of blocks ). Asking the exact direction base on your location from the locals would save your time and budget.
