My tour of Fort Santiago did not disappoint me. For those who also have a passion for visiting old fortresses and castles, must take the time to see Fort Santiago also.

This historical and beautiful defense fortress was built by Spanish conquistadors in 1571. During World War II when Japan had control of this territory, this Filipino fortress served as a torture chamber for both American and Filipino soldiers.

There are even rumors of ghosts dwelling around in the chamber. During the Battle for Manila, American bombs almost fully destroyed the Fort of Santiago. However, this fortress was restored after the war.
