Fort Santiago will reopen its gate to the public beginning February 10 after the success of the biggest architectural festival held in the country this month.
Fort Santiago was the central headquarters of colonial military high command, its dungeons assumed a notorious image.
Black legend surrounding this prison facility states that as the tide rose, prisoners would drown or suffocate as the water depleted the air in the chambers. However, this legend remains a legend for we now know that despite being near a body of water, the entire dungeon facility is actually above sea level, and that the entire cavern complex is actually a small hollowed-out hill adjacent to the Baluarte de Santa Barbara.
