Peaceful place to explore and view the historic structures. However, I found there was a lack of information available. Best to pay for a tour if you are not travelling with locals. There was a cool lego display when I visited.

Thank weLEFT

The fort is a part of Intramuros. It's worth the visit if you are into history. You can spend more than 1 hour here.
