Some of the places you will be visited in Cebu City tour. Some are Old and others are pretty new. It’s always a great experience to see how a city evolved through time, don’t you think?
The Fort San Pedro – is an old military defense structure in the Cebu. It served as a military garrison and a stronghold under the command of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. Today, the Fort has been preserved as a museum with photos of old Cebu, artifacts and documented write-ups of the fort’s history. Fort San Pedro walls at the entrance are filled with photos and documentaries. Cebu City tour let you step this fort and you can overview of the fort’s history. Admittedly, Fort San Pedro is not that spacious and it is actually the oldest and the smallest fort in the Philippines.
Magellan’s Cross – You can’t really say that you’ve been to Cebu without a tour in Magellan’s Cross near the St. Nino Shrine. It’s a landmark in the city that has a significant meaning to the people of Cebu. Magellan’s cross serves as a symbol of the native’s accepting Ferdinand Magellan and his men arrived in the island in 1521. The original cross is said to be encased on a tindola wood for protection not only from the weather but also from some patrons who tried to chip away some parts of the cross for souvenirs.
Sto. Nino Church – known as the oldest Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines, the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino is an architecture marvel that you should visit. It should be noted that the Philippines is a country where the majority of its people are Catholic. Thus a visit to some of its church within the archipelago is usually included in any itinerary.
Taoist Temple – in Beverly Hills, the taoist temple is a multi-tiered temple that serves as the center of Taoism in the city. Despite that, it is open to non-worshipers to. The structure in itself is worth a visit not to mention the amazing views of the city that you can see. Cebu City tour reminds that the Taoist Temple is a place of worship, so proper behavior should be maintained.
Sirao Flower Farm – There are 2 Sirao Flower Farms. Both on the process of developing their landscape. The flowers are indeed instagrammable if caught with the right angle. Some months when everything is in full bloom, this will be a great place to visit.
Temple of Leah – in Brgy Busay is seen the statue of the Grandmother of Ellen Adarna, a well known TV personality and If you are into an architecture, then the Temple of Leah should be in your Cebu City tour itinerary. It’s an elaborate Roman-style structure built by Teodorico Soriano Adarna in honor of his wife, Leah Villa Albino-Adarna. You could say it’s a symbol of love like the Taj Mahal in India.
Lapu-Lapu Shrine – in Mactan has numerous resorts found there, Mactan is also popular because of the history that it represents in the region. This is where Lapu-Lapu, a native leader, was able to defend his island from the Spaniards led by the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in what we call as the Battle of Mactan in 1521. It is a 66 ft bronze statue has been erected here in honor of Lapu-Lapu.
10,000 Roses – To be honest, it is just a café near the beach. But what is really spectacular about the place are the 10,000 white roses at the entrance. You’ll be rewarded with the cool view of the white roses lighting up the area if you wait for the night/ dusk.
