Fort Santiago

The amazing Fort Santiago, a citadel and fortress in Manila, Philippines, is one of the most important historical sites in the entire country. Fort Santiago was originally built by Miguel López de Legazpi, a Spanish conquistador, who named the fort after Saint James the Great, the Patron Saint of Spain. The fort has an almost triangular form and a perimeter of 620 metres that is surrounded by a moat that separates it from the city. Now this 16th century fort is a testament to the rich history and fighting spirit of the Philippines.

  • Walk the road that snakes through Fort Santiago, which contained some of the most famous prisoners in Manila, and you can see the footsteps of Jose Rizal on the way to his execution.
  • Explore the northern entrance to the fort to see The Postern of Our Lady of Solitude and to marvel at the ancient walls that were once the main defence system for Manila
  • Admire the restored façade of Fort Santiago that is decorated ornately with unique carvings and statues.

Fort Santiago is easy to reach using Manila’s public transport or taxi. The easiest way to get to Fort Santiago by public transport is to take the LRT. You can get on the LRT at the Baclaran Station then get off at the Central Station that is just a short walk away from the fort. Taxis in Manila are inexpensive and easy to find, so the most convenient way to get there is to just jump into a taxi. Be sure to negotiate a fare first to ensure the fare is not overcharged.
