When I’ve had the chance to visit Cebu City lately I took the opportunity to visit some historical landmarks knowing for a fact that this city is rich in history and the oldest city in the country.

Again, I rode a ferry boat from Mactan Island going to the city. This is the fastest way en route to my destination. It was a fine weather and I enjoyed riding the boat.

Being the oldest city, I visited Colon which was the business hub long time ago and its old churches.

This is the Sto. Niño de Cebu church. It was founded by an Augustinian priest, Andres de Urdaneta on April 28, 1565. Every Feast Day of Sr. Sto Niño this church is flooded with people from all walks of life.

This is the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. It is the ecclesiastical seat of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Cebu. It was established as a diocese on August 14, 1595. It became elevated as a metropolitan archdiocese on April 28, 1934 with the diocese of Dumaguete, Maasin and Tagbilaran as suffragans.

This is the Magellan’s Cross. The ceiling is filled with murals.

Handicrafts and delicacies of Cebu

My true testament of how I love this city.
