Philippine Trip: Fort Pilar

Fort Pilar in Zamboanga City is a historical site filled with beauty and calm.

Its origins were as a fort for the Spaniards before becoming a museum in recent days. In the courtyard of Fort Pilar, there is a shrine dedicated Our Lady of the Pillar.

You can purchase candles from vendors outside the fort for about 50 pesos. I purchased some, lit them, and said a prayer as they burned.

It’s very peaceful at Fort Pilar and I saw some people hanging out here as they took in the sight.
