About this place

Fort Santiago is a defense fortress located on the Intramuros, the historical city centre of Manila. It´s got its name from the Spanish patron saint Santiago which relief can be seen on the front façade. During the colonial period it was sort of the principal fort. From the two sides of the fort stretch two bastions (walls) called the Bastion of San Fernando and the Bastion of San Miguel. Its walls are of the impressive height and thickness. Numerous guard stations, rooms for army purposes, a chapel, a storehouse, quarters, prison dungeons …

As the rest of the Intramuros, Fort of Santiago suffered a significant destruction during several battles but the greatest was during the Second World War. 

Today, the Fort Santiago is the Manila landmark and a popular tourist attraction, included in every Manila tour.
