What people are saying:

we need not travel far frommanila have an adventure. Located in the heart of Old Manila, Intramuros Manila (“within the walls” when translated literally from Spanish) is one of the Philippines’ biggest cultural and historical landmarks.The Walled City and its famous citadel Fort Santiago were the seat of government during the Spanish colonial period. Now, it is still very much a living, breathing city with universities, government offices, banks, hotels, and restaurants—and it is well worth the visit. The best part is you can enjoy most parts of Intramuros Manila without breaking the bank!

Additional Information

Introduction

Fort Santiago is located on the Pasig River where it was constructed in 1590 as a defense against pirates. It is part of the Intramuros section of Manila. Fort Santiago was named as the Shrine of Freedom in 1950. If you visit Fort Santiago, you can tour the Rizal Shrine to honor the Philippine hero José Rizal who was imprisoned there in a prison cell in 1896. The shrine includes bronze footprints that mark his final steps from the cell to the place where he was executed. You can also tour the dungeon where Japanese soldiers held prisoners during World War II. Come visit Fort Santiago and honor the history and bravery of the Philippine people.
