Part of the fascinating historic centre of Manila, Fort Santiago is interesting if not quite as impressive as some of the other sights. Nice cafe and gift shops available too, so worth a visit.

A succession of foreign occupiers, Spanish, English, American, Japanese, this historic fort is situated in a corner of the 'old' Intramuros, in Manila. Bastions, shrine, museum, chapel, moat, open garden spaces, souvenir shops, etc, make a visit here a must.
