If you want to go back in time to the Spanish Era, all you really need to do is hail a jeep travelling from carbon and get off at this beautiful rustic place. Its quite romantic at night after the city government spruced up the place. It has the old Spanish feel that seems to correlate with love and romance. It subtle and effortless charm as earn this place as one of THE places to propose, reenact old spanish tales and house other special events. #henrysintaxgiveaway

Fuerte de San Pedro is known to be a military structure in Cebu built by the Spaniards. It is located in the area now called Plaza Indepedencia, in the pier area of the city.

You will notice that the fort is triangular in shape, with two sides facing the sea and the third side fronting the land. This has something to do with the world wars.

A tour guide may assist you on the surroundings. You will see there different galleries from the past and other artifacts.

You can take photos as long as you want. Entrance fee is P30.

It's basically a baby Intramuros in Cebu.

The tour guide will take you around, tell you that Fort San Pedro became a part of the American barracks during the American regime,

Then from 1937 to 1941 the barracks was converted into a school.

Then it became an army camp, then part of it became a zoo.

Then it was restored and is now a park and museum. Not much to see actually.

Oh, and you can also rent the place out for weddings or birthday parties. 128077

One of those touristy places that mean something historic, but do not hold much information on its significance to the city of Cebu. Its certainly very picturesque and photogenic, and I guess it is one of its good points. I like the fact that we can go up the walls and pretend that you're a city defender of old. My little godson loved the cannons. When we came there's also a set up for a wedding reception, and it certainly is a great venue for it.

I visited Fort San Pedro a couple of years back. 2011, i guess. The place is similar to Intramuros. Locals and tourists frolic this place for leisure. There is not much to see, the backdrop is good for taking Lookbook photos.

The ambience of the Fort San Pedro was greener than Fort Santiango, although it just a small triangular base of the Spaniards.

It was clean, and have a reasonable price and also other tourist spots are walking distance.

Another CebAdventure experience.

Historical landmark located in the area now called Plaza Independencia. Fort San Pedro's facade is like a mini intramuros. Considered as the smallest and oldest spanish outpost in the Philippines.

Entrance fee is P30/person. The time were inside the fort, there are couples who had their photo shoot for pre-nup and some undergoing restoration in the area. The place is really small and you can roam around for more or less than 30mins.

Built in 1565 under the command of Miguel López de Legazpi, conqueror of the Philippines, Fort San Pedro has served as an army garrison, a rebel stronghold, prison camp and the city zoo. These days it’s retired as a peaceful, walled garden and handsomely crumbling ruin. It’s a perfect retreat from the chaos and madness of downtown Cebu traffic

Welcome to the miniaturized version of intramuros. Basically it's the same major design only smaller in scale and with less structures and buildings inside versus that of its Manila counterpart.

Basically it's a walled fort built to house the rich and famous before during the Spanish era if ever war or certain calamities ensued.

I'm glad to see not much has changed from my last visit (2-3 years ago) so it's basically maintained and any minor damages caused by the quake last year has been repaired.

Didn't explore much as it was being prepared for a wedding reception for that evening. Pwede pala I-rent yun?! Haha

Tamad to upload our recent pics, so our first visit here will have to do...

If it's your first time in Cebu, it's pretty easy to see the historical sites on a DIY tour... It's not at all confusing and Cebuanos are very friendly and helpful in terms of teaching you about their public transportation system... Jeep (or should I say L300?) is they way to go!128522

I've been here a few times, but since it was my bf's first visit to Cebu this year, we had to go here... Historically significant, well maintained and pretty in pics, it's a must to visit when going to Cebu...128522
