Fort Santiago opens its dungeons for public viewing from 2pm to 10pm every day.

The public can now explore what used to be the storage vaults and powder magazines of the Baluarte de Santa Barbara, a stone bastion built in 1592.

Entrance fee costs P75 for adults and P50 for students, senior citizens, and persons with disability (PWD).

Fort Santiago was a fortified area built in the early 1500s by the Spanish government during the colonization of Manila.
