What happened inside these Intramuros dungeons

A part of Manila’s city walls of Intramuros is this fortress built in 1593 with dungeons that served a very horrific purpose. More than 400 years later, Intramuros opens the door of these dungeons wider to share its hideous past with the modern Filipino.

During the Spanish regime, Fort Santiago’s dungeons served as a prison. When the Japanese took over the country, the dungeon continued to house prisoners.

The dungeon’s creepy ambiance says a bit of what happened in its corners.

If you are heading to Intramuros this weekend, have a peak at the Fort Santiago dungeons.
