My Second Visit To Fort Santiago (Part 3 of 3)

Most of these last set of pictures are taken at the Falsabraga de Santa Barbara. This is the portion of Fort Santiago that’s on the banks of Pasig River. You’ll have a great view of the Binondo district (Manila) opposite the river.

You’ll see a stairway to Baluarte de Santa Barbara where the Rizaliana Furniture Exhibit is located. This is the highest point at Fort Santiago.

On my way out of Fort Santiago, I passed by the Dulaang Rajah Soliman on the way to the Bamboo Garden. Opposite the Bamboo Garden is the central plaza called Plaza Moriones. You’ll see two beautiful fountains here as well as several black statues of the Three Filipino Martyr Priests Gomburza (Gomez, Burgos, Zamora) and President Quezon with General McArthur.

I had a great time visiting Fort Santiago for the second time. I’m sure I’ll be back soon, hopefully with a lover, to make it even more memorable.

Would you accompany me back to Fort Santiago?
