Fort Santiago is a Spanish defense stronghold in the Philippines , located in Manila . Fort Santiago was a part of the palace of Rajah Sulaiman, a Muslim military leader in Manila . The first clay building was destroyed by Chinese pirates during the 1574-1575 wars. The construction of the stone fortress began in 1589. During this period, Fort Santiago came to be a strategic point on the trade route between America and Europe. The fortress is surrounded by walls, which are 6,7 m high and 2,4 m wide, and with a 12 m high entrance gate. During the Second World War, Fort Santiago was besieged by Japanese troops, and later it was seriously damaged in the Battle of Manila .
