Castillo de San Vicente Ferrer • Punta Cruz, Maribojoc, Bohol

This triangular fort, has a roofed second storey designed as a hexagon. The windows above and below open to the Bohol Sea, and on a clear day Siquijor island and southeast Cebu are visible. The fort has the inscription Castillo de San Vicente Ferrer and the date 1796 in stone relief above the entrance. The stone inscription is greatly abraded and damaged otherwise the fort is in good condition. Consolidation of the upper floor is necessary because the molave timber supporting the lime floor is rotting. The fort is in a park, said to be the site where the first Jesuit missionaries landed.
