A citadel built by Miguel Lopez de Legaspi as a defense for Intramuros, Fort Santiago holds a large significance to Philippine history. During the Spanish Colonial Period and the World War II, many lives were lost. However, the most notable of them all is Dr. Jose Rizal, who spent more than a month in one of the cells, until the day before his execution on Dec. 30, 1896. #FortSantiago #HistoricalPlaces Image Source: https://theincoherentellipsis.wordpress.com
