The Fort Santiago Dungeons
So here’s a little fun fact about the Fort Santiago Dungeons, it was originally built as a storage vault and powder vault of the Baluarte de Santa Barbara. But it was too damp because of the humid weather and its proximity to the Pasig River. So it was converted into prison cells in 1718 instead. And most prominently, it’s where our National Hero Jose Rizal was held before he was publicly executed.
The Fort Santiago Dungeons are open daily from 2 PM to 10 PM. And the entrance fee starts at 75 PHP for adults, 50 PHP for students, senior citizens, and PWDs.

Overall, the Fort Santiago Dungeons is definitely an interesting place to visit. And if only walls could talk, the stories they hold are probably epic. But aside from the dungeons, there are many other places in Intramuros that are worth the time to visit. Such as the Rizal Shrine, Baluarte De San Diego, and Casa Manila among others. So you should definitely check them out as well.
