The event is organized to give viewers an opportunity to learn more about the historical landmark without leaving home, support local museums and promote cultural education through social media.

Fort San Pedro is the smallest and oldest and smallest fort in the Philippines, constructed shortly after Miguel Lopez de Legaspi’s arrival in 1565. It is set to reopen today, September 16 after a six-month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
