I came back to mi ciudad de Zamboanga to have my one-week vacation in this wonderful city of mine, also called now as Asia’s Latin City. Dante and Elmar fetched me in Upper Calarian at the main opening going to the Armed Forces of the Philippines Logistics Command (AFPLC) of the Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom). Then at the city proper, we passed by the Zamboanga City Hall, built during the American era.
Then, we headed straight to Fort Pilar, a fortress that guarded Zamboanga City from the invading groups of people from different waves.
We entered the gate and left my identification card to the guard assigned for that day and went inside the fort. The picture below shows the inside of Fort Pilar:
We were escorted by a guard that guards the place, and gave us special passes to go to the upper level of the fortress. There, I took some shots with us in it. Hehehehe. I just love to see historical places.
Well well, more images of this historical site, and not us. Hahahahaha.
We again went down from the upper level to the lower ground.
We decided to go out of Fort Pilar and went to Pasonanca park. But before we left, I took shots of the walls that guarded this fortress for hundred of years since it has been built until now.
We also visited the museum inside. But then, we were told not to take pictures inside. (ssshhh…. I got a whole bunch of pictures inside! hihihihi). This fortress, Fort Pilar protected the city from bandits, rebels and invaders that would want to conquer this piece of beautiful pensinsula. It shall be the symbol of the strength of the city, for many years to come, as was in the past.
