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.
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.
Travel Tips and General Informations
Start a Collection
Give the children an activity that can last the entire summer and maybe beyond. Starting
a collection is a good way to learn more about a topic and can be the start of a new
hobby. A good summertime activity is to begin a nature collection or book.
If your child is interested in a particular collecting genre it would be best to go with that
first (seashells, stamps, hockey cards, etc.) but if they don’t and you want to introduce
them to the world of collecting here are some easy suggestions. Start a Collection
