Walking a few steps from the port, you will reach one of the tourist spot in Ozamis City, the Cotta Fort. It was initially used as a Spanish outpost and became constabulary headquarters during the Japanese and American period. Cotta Fort was built in 1756.
Besides the fort is the Blessed Virgin of Cotta, also known as Our Lady of Triumph. The lady serves as guide for sea travelers and fishermen. They celebrate her feast day every 16th day of July.
This place was declared as a national heritage marker last March 13,2002.
