Information about Fort San Pedro
Fort San Pedro
Fort San Pedro situated at A. Pigafetta Street, Cebu City, is the oldest and smallest fort in the Philippines and is one of the city’s pride. Lying in Plaza Independencia in the pier area of Cebu, the fort holds a rich history of the island and the historical events during the Spanish rule.
Fuerza de San Pedro is a triangular bastion fort. Its two sides are fronting the sea, and the other edge is facing the land where the entrance to the fort is located. You can see cannons installed on the sides facing the sea, while a sturdy fence made of wood is placed in front.
At present, Fort San Pedro is a historical park under the care and administration of the Cebu City government. You can visit the museum inside the fort that holds several preserved Spanish artifacts, such as paintings, sculptures, old photographs and items, and documents.
The spacious lawn of the fort now serves as a perfect venue for occasions like weddings, birthdays, and others, but only with a permit from the designated personnel.
