Fort Santiago hotels
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.
