In The Philippines – October 2022 to March 2023

Fort Santiago

Back in the Philippines. In January, Dave and Edna visited Fort Santiago, Intramuros Manila.  This is a 16th century Spanish fort complete with dungeons, which we were able to walk through. See the short video below.

This fort was also the site of a major battle between US and Japanese forces in 1945.  Some of the walls inside the fort are riddled with bullet holes. The far side of the doorway in this photo was badly damaged when an American tank tried to drive through it during the battle.
