Fort Pilar is a shrine for the Virgin Mary. Many and I mean a LOT of people come here to pray and basically offer up all their worries, sorrows and thanksgiving. This shrine is very important, very much treasured and very much visited in Zamboanga City. Legend has it that when a big wave was about to his Zamboanga, clouds opened up and the Virgin Mary appeared to the people and the wave never washed over Zamboanga that would have devastated a lot of houses and claimed many people's lives. That is why Fort Pilar is revered by Catholics and other denomination of the olden times and now the belief/faith is passed on to their children and their children's children.
