  • This is a must visit when in Zamboanga. My second time visiting and it has now catch the visiting public. A local shared that during the unfortunate siege, this place was not “harmed”. A very solemn place best to visit at night time.
  • Nice place. A lot of people coming for meditating or praying or simply to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere here.
  • Fort Pilar Shrine is one of the best shrine in the Philippines honoring Nuestra Señora Virgin del Pilar. The place is truly majestic and beautiful. Masses are mixed with English and Chavacano.
  • Place of renewing Faith.
  • It's a historical and religious place. It is also a great place where you can go relax your mind no matter what religion you are in.
