After too many plans that we weren't able to push through, we finally visited Fort Santiago on Rizal Day. It wasn't crowded as I thought it would be considering it was December 30, holiday and commemoration of death of Jose Rizal. For a very minimal entrance fee, P50 each for student with ID and 75 for regular pass, one will surely enjoy the historical place. Most of the tourists that I saw inside the park were foreigners.
We took the opportunity to take more photos while inside the park. So I thought that DSLRs and other cameras are not allowed. No. Tourists could freely take photos inside. There are just some areas where flashes of the cameras are required to turn off.
Fort Santiago is open daily from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Rizal Shrine is open on Monday from 1 to 5pm and on Tuesday - Sunday from 9:00am to 6:o0pm as posted at the entrance gate.
