    Fort Pilar
    The fort was built on June 23, 1635 by Father Melchor de Vera, a Jesuit Priest-Engineer, to ward off attacks from the moros and foreign invaders. Originally named the Real Fuerza de San Jose, it was renamed after it was rebuilt in 1719. The Real Fuerza de Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza, whose statue was embossed on the east wall in 1734 as a frontpiece atop the entrance, was eventually sealed when it became a shrine.
    Fort Pilar is a fifteen-minute walk from City Hall, NS Valderrosa Street.

    City Hall
    The construction of this Hispanic building started in 1905 and was completed in 1907 by the Federal Government of the United States for the American Governors of the area, which included Leonard O. Wood, Tasker H. Bliss, Ralph W. Hoyt, and John Pershing of World War I fame. Today it serves as the City Hall of Zamboanga, where the City Mayor holds office. It is located right at the heart of Zamboanga City.


Philippine Travel Tips and General Informations


Become a Summer Tourist

There are many activities in or around your city that you probably know all the tourists go to, but when was the last time you went? Just because you have been there many
times before along with your children doesn’t mean they wouldn’t love to go again (and again and again).

Take a few days during the summer break to visit attractions and destinations that you haven’t been to in awhile. If you know that the place is going to be crowded on the
weekend or in the afternoons go on a weekday morning. The added benefit of being a local and going to a tourist destination is that you know the ins and outs and the tricks to
get the most out of your day. Become a Summer Tourist

Motivational & Inspirational Quotes: On long haul flights I always drink loads and loads of water and eat light and healthy food. Lisa Snowdon

    Pettit Barracks
    These barracks had been occupied by the American Forces under General C. Bates after their capture of the city on November 16, 1899. The site was named Pettit Barracks in honor of Colonel James S. Pettit, 31st Infantry US Forces Volunteer Commanding Officer of the Second Military District, who was later promoted to the rank of General and became the Inspector General and In-Charge of Civil Affairs of Zamboanga. Pettit Barracks is roughly a five-minute walk from City Hall.

    Pasonanca Aviary
    One of the newest interesting sites in Zamboanga City is the aviary at Pasonanca Park, located around 7.5 kilometers north of the city proper. It showcases different species of domestic and imported birds. It has become a favorite place for families and tourists. Pasonanca Park is roughly a 15-minute ride from City Hall.
