What people are saying:

This is a fort left over from the Spanish colonial period. It has a history of nearly 300 years. What he didn't know about the gate tower thought it was a church, but he was actually a bridgehead. There are still cannons left over on the city wall. It can be imagined that this place must have been a military fortress at that time, which was very important.

    A fortress, a castle and a prison

    It is bigger than you think and a lot of history is behind it. It was a fortress, a castle and prison. Thank God they have preserved it.
