Take a Stroll at Fort San Pedro

on

I have posted some of the pictures of Fuerza San Pedro in my weekly photo challenge but let’s take a short stroll inside the fort.

I am not sure how old this tree is but it is still there standing. What stories this tree could tell, if it can only talk.

Going up or down?

The Post Office of Cebu. I wonder if it is still in use.

A viewing turret?

The fort is small but it is nice and green inside.

If you are visiting Cebu City, try to get a little glimpse of the Spanish Era of the City by taking a short stroll within the wall of this fort.

Hope you enjoy the stroll. Have a nice day ahead 🙂
