The University of the Philippines – School of Archeology recently held an archaeological site exhibit and unveiling of the 3D diorama of Fort Almonte, a 19th-century Spanish fortification situated inside Liangan Elementary School in Bacolod, Lanao del Norte. Prior to the exhibit, archaeologists have been conducting excavation and exploration at the site where the ruins of Fort Almonte are found.
This is part of the remaining ruins of the fort.
Shown below is the 3D Diorama of Fort Almonte, a replica of what the fort looked like when it was first constructed in 1891. The archeological research and excavation have discovered that the fort measured 30 by 25 meters.
Accordingly, excavations have yielded several artifacts like pistol bullets, earthenware sherds, and a few bone fragments.
The provincial government is hoping that the ruins of Fort Almonte will soon be declared as a National Cultural Treasure and will become a tourist attraction.
