Santa Isabel Fort - Palawan Attractions

Santa Isabel Fort

This fort was built in the mid to late 17th century by the Augustinian Recollects who replaced the early Jesuit community. In those days, the church and the military traveled hand-in-hand throughout the Philippines, building small chapels and protecting them with large fortified walls and a military regiment. Both the fort's cannon and its chapel remain intact to this day. Santa Isabel Fort is located in the town of Taytay, eight hours by jeepney from Puerto Princesa. The historic Taytay Fort built in 1667 under the Augustinian Recollect Fathers was usedas a military station during that period. The fort's small chapel and cannon are still intact.
