Fuerta or Fort Isabel has been a botanical garden-museum ever since the government decided to retain the infrastructure from the war in nineteen kopong kopong.

And so as part of our tour, coming from PP airport we dropped at Taytay before El Nido. We hurriedly went to the Fort and paid 30PhP before entering.

This is the entrance to the fort. At the doorway awaits a group who will collect your payment.

A model canon at the side of the entrance. Defense strategy

After paying, you will immediate pass by here. There's a chair where you could take picture of the botanical walkway

Photo 4
Turning left right away is another walkway to the top of the fort. The walls at the left have pictures that show the past pictures of the fort

The mini museum. More history and artifacts just before you go to the top of the fort.

Photo 6
The last botanical walkway to the top of the fort. Does this tire you?

Photo 7
Alas. At the top of the fort stands a chapel. It does look like the government does take care of this place--the chairs looks old and legit.

Photo 8
Another model canyon. This one's at the top of the fort. A defense strategy for enemies seen at bay?

Photo 9
The tower. This is where you peek at your enemies. Sniper? Maybe?

The pit. Here's a refuge if your fort is attacked heavily.

I dont like history to be honest, but i enjoyed the scenery here. There's no pokestops here but there are a few sightings around.

This small chapel is part of the historic Taytay Fort in Palawan - Fuerza de Santa Isabel. It's still intact and can hold weddings for only Php1,500.00!

Fuerza de Santa Isabel was built in 1667 under the Augustinian Recollect Fathers and named in honor of Spain's Queen Isabela II in the 19th century. The fort was used as a military station during that period.
