What travelers say:

I went to visit Fort Santiago because I was in the old town and it was ranked so highly on TripAdvisor. It was 75 pesos to enter and all I saw was construction work being done. You can only walk down one main path which is also littered with horse carts asking to give you a 'tour'. When you finally reach the top part of the fort... It's drenched in this awful smell from the nearby polluted river. Definitely a pass until they can clean it up.

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.
