The public is invited to observe Holy Week through the unique Way of the Cross at Fort Santiago, the most popular spot in Intramuros and the prime tourist destination in Manila. The Way of the Cross is a series of 14 stations representing the events of the Passion of Christ. The Intramuros Administration (IA) requested educational institutions and other government agencies in the Walled City to set up the 14 Stations of the Cross at Fort Santiago, as an alternative venue for the thousands of Catholics who will be visiting Manila Cathedral and San Agustin Church during Holy Week.

Joining IA in this special Lenten project are (in chronological order): Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Club Intramuros Golf Course, Bureau of the Treasury, Department of Labor and Employment, Mapua Institute of Technology, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, Bagumbayan Light and Sound Museum, Commission on Elections, Bureau of Internal Revenue No. 6 Manila and Lyceum of the Philippines University.

Everyone is welcome to do the Way of the Cross at Fort Santiago starting Palm Sunday until Easter Sunday (except Good Friday), from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
