The fort is similar to Intramuros but very much smaller. There are a couple of rooms where some memorabilia are kept. But is seems like these are not well maintained; you can see... read more

We went there because of the good reviews. Actually we expected more history and more to see. It's O.K. if you're nearby but not necessarily needed to go extra there.

A place that offers Filipino history, very clean and inviting. Restrooms are very clean and well maintained. Good place to visit and learn the start of Spanish colonization in the Philippines. Good day to visit is early morning/late morning during Sundays where lots of Filipino Catholics are attending worship service.

There is not too much here and it does not really tell you too much of the history but it is a nice place to take a look round. Not too far from the Magella's cross so you can walk to this one from there.

The fort is similar to Intramuros but very much smaller. There are a couple of rooms where some memorabilia are kept. But is seems like these are not well maintained; you can see the mildew on the edges of the items on display. You can go up and walk around the walkway on the wall to get a feel of... More

One of my favorite spot in Cebu City. A cheap entrance is so worth your money especially if it's your first time in the city. Not much activity except strolling and photo ops though. Just be mindful of your personal belongings but this is my nth visit and I haven't encountered any snatchers or pickpocketers. The place is also nice... More

I didn't have loads of expectations, since this fort is tiny (as colonial forts in the Philippines go) and it's not incredibly popular with tourists. Still, we were pleasantly surprised! There's a small museum inside that makes for good reading. The highlight for us though was to be able to walk around the tops of the fort's walls, and imagine... More

Lots of relics and good information. Nice and well preserved. The sights are from the top are worth a trip if you have nothing much to do that day.

I recommend this musuem/attraction to be visited by touists because it summarizes the history of Cebu. I think this place must be visited first because you will understand how Cebu became Cebu. I liked their idea of having OJT students to be tour guide because for our case they added fun while learning in our tour. You can go in... More

Visited with friends/colleagues last December 2016 We went here via jeepney from Sugbu Museum It was past three in the afternoon and it was really humid when we arrived at the Plaza where the fort is located. It is actually near the port, not the fishing port but for the ships that travel to Bohol and other provinces in the... More

I thought I was in a different timezone when I went to Fort San Pedro. Very nice historical place. Kids would learn a lot going here, too.
