If you’ve wanted to revisit the historic Fort Santiago, then now is the best time to plan a visit!
On January 31, the Intramuros Administration announced in a Facebook post that they have opened Fort Santiago’s famed dungeons to the public.
Open daily from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m, visitors can explore the dungeons that were used as storage vaults and powder magazine of the Baluarte de Santa Barbara, a stone structure constructed in 1592, GMANews reported.
During the Second World War, the dungeons were used by Japanese troops to imprison resistance fighters and political prisoners.
The entrance to Fort Santiago is P75 for adults, and P50 for students, senior citizens, and persons with disability (PWD).
