Fuerza de San Pedro (Fort San Pedro) and Plaza Independencia PART 1





I love history. When I was still in school, it was one of my favorite subjects and I would love to memorize bits and bits or whole chapters of information about it. When it comes to matters about Spain, I just wondered why I did not learn to hate them even if history tells me that Filipinos were mistreated by them. It was just a few years ago that I realized that Spanish blood runs through my veins so I finally can relate to the saying "Blood is thicker than water."

One way to get a trip back to Spanish memory lane is to visit the Fort San Pedro. It is located near Pier 1 and is just beside Malacanang sa Sugbo and South Reclamation Project. I like the new look of the Plaza Independencia. It makes the Fort San Pedro look more beautiful. I hate to say this but I think our taxes was spent wisely in the beautification project of Plaza Independencia.
