Cotta Fort and the Virgin of Cotta, Misamis Occidental

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.

About pinay travelaholic

A Filipina who loves to travel. Born with a family of travelers and started traveling when she was just 2months old. Raised in the hustle and bustling life of the metro but has savored the laid back lifestyle of the countryside during summer vacations. At a very young age, she has experienced being stranded on a train for 3 days, being thrown inside the window of the bus just to save a seat and “top loaded” (riding on the roof) on a PUJ just to reach their destination. …Traveling became her adventure since then.
