A Side Trip to Fuerza de Santa Isabel in Taytay, Palawan

Our guide and driver, Kuya Nestor, probably liked us so much that he thought of bringing us to Taytay, the capital of Palawan during the Spanish Era.

We spent a good hour in Fuerza de Santa Isabel, the old Spanish fort by the sea built to suppress the Moros who tried to reclaim what was rightfully theirs. Entrance for adults is P40.

When we got there, there were people setting up tables and chairs for a wedding. Apparently, since it’s government-owned, there is no fee for the use of the venue, but you could give (and I imagine that you are required to give) a donation for the upkeep of the place. It could be a good idea should you decide to hold your wedding there, you know; the chapel is still intact, and the surroundings are really pleasant.
