Erected over the palisade of the last king of pre-Hispanic Manila, Fort Santiago embodied the military might of Spanish colonial rule for over three centuries. It was occupied by British forces for a two-year period in the 18th century and by American colonial authorities after Spain surrendered the Philippines to the U.S.A in 1898.
