Fort San Juan
Fort San Juan’s construction started in 1889 a year after the construction of the San Sebastian Cathedral was finished in 1888. Father Mauricio Ferrero, the Spanish Friar who laid out Bacolod, constructed Fort San Juan in exchange for the use of prisoners in the construction of the San Sebastian Cathedral.
It was ironic that after the Cinco de Noviembre in 1898, thirty-six (36) Spanish friars were ordered incarcerated at Fort San Juan.
