A Glimpse of Fort San Pedro

Last weekend, after attending a special activity, I found myself wandering in Fort San Pedro. Fort San Pedro is located inside Plaza Independencia near the pier area of the city.

Fort San Pedro was built in 1565 and is the smallest and oldest triangular bastion in the country. This was primarily built to protect the Spanish settlers from pirates attacking in the area. It also served as a prison camp during Japanese occupation.

Once inside, you will be taken in a different era, though the place is developed and there are a lot of plants and sort of a garden, there are still structures that will give you a glimpse of the Spanish period. You'll walk in stone pathways and will see inoperative cannons which were used during the Spanish period.

There's also a museum where you can find paintings and some relics where you can learned a lot. 

So when you visit Cebu, don't forget to drop by this historical place.
