CEBU CITY: must see

“Queen City of the South” that’s how it’s called by most Filipinos. Best known for delicious mangoes and the best guitars. People there are called Cebuanos. They worship the Santo Nino. Best known for The Sinulog Festival. It is celebrated every 3rd Sunday of January. The city is usually sunny and hot.


SANTO NINO BASILICA
This amazing and historic old church is situated on the older section of Cebu City. The Basilica is evidently an old and interesting church, with astonishing carved wood - especially behind the altar. One can feel the history here. The church is to some extent gloomy and rustic, which adds to its lure and the moving impact of visiting.





MAGELLAN’S CROSS
A go see for catholics. It's the cross left behind by the Spaniards centuries ago. It is said that the holy cross has healing powers. There are striking, beautiful paintings on the ceiling of the hexagonal chapel. It's a piece of Cebuano/Spanish history.




FORT SAN PEDRO

One needs to know and appreciate the historical events of the site to realize its worth and magnificence. It's a pleasant and calm place to break away from the chaos of the city. A Spanish style structure and relaxing garden which serves as an escape from the turmoil of downtown Cebu.


MACTAN SHRINE.
Lapu Lapu monument. It is a witness to the Filipino bravery and is epic for the reason that it is the foremost… the first ever substantial opposition to foreign supremacy.
