Zamboanga City's Fort Pilar
"Real Fuerza de Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragosa"
(1635 - 2006)
371 years of history and transformation.
Over the past many decades, there has never been made a detailed pictorial representation of the venerable fort of the fabled City of Zamboanga, the place they refer to as "The City of Flowers." It is unfortunate that many people do not have the capacity or the interest to present this pictorial of the historic Fort Pilar, the "Real Fuerza de Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragosa." Fortunately, we at Zamboanga.com were very interested in pursuing this endeavor, and the end result shall be preserved and left up to our web site's visitors to enjoy for as long as they desire to. A pictorial history is being unfolded herein, and it is possible to picture former and present-day life in the fort through the architectural details and design of this sturdy fort that has never lost sight of its purpose of protecting its citizens. Bienvenidos!
