Taytay is a sleepy town in the northern part of Palawan. Tagged as “La Estrella del Norte,” due to the historical fort located in the town. The Fuerza Santa Isabel was built in the 17th century when the town was formally dedicated to Spain. The grounds of the fort are well-kept and offers views of the surrounding seas and mountains of Taytay. The fort is open during weekdays, Mondays through Fridays from 8AM to 5PM.
