The dungeon was originally the Spaniards' storage facility for gunpowder and weapons before it was converted into a prison cell in the 17th century. Today, the dungeon could elicit a certain charm with its architecture, and rouse curiosity especially among those interested in history.

Fortunately, eveyone can now see and experience the dungeon first-hand. It is open from 2PM to 10PM everyday, with an entrance fee to the Fort Santiago price P75 for adults and P50 for students, seniors, and PWDs. To help you out with your DIY tour, there are also downloadable maps of Intramuros and Fort Santiago at the Intramuros website.
