Magellan, Sto. Niño and San Pedro Met In Cebu, Philippines

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

For our Cebu trip continuation, here is a capsuled post of the 3 must-see places when you're in Cebu. Your trip will not be completed if you're not been in these places. Sto. Niño Cathedral, Magellan's Cross and Fort San Pedro are just near to each other so you can walk from one place to another. 

 A part of Sto. Niño Cathedral is now under construction due to the latest earthquake that struck the Visayas region. It was a big quake that almost of the old churches was brought down. We didn't able to pray inside the church because it was closed and was not having a mass so le boyfriend just lit a candle and offered a prayer.
 The cross of Magellan was also under construction when we got there. Yes, it was not like as before I went to Cebu but still the history and story remained intact for foreigners and even locals to know.
FYI, Fort San Pedro's wall was made by egg whites as a glue. Also, after the earthquake, it still remained the same minus the saints was not displayed already. Maybe because in order for them to be safe in case there will be another earthquake, but hoping no more. Please #prayforthephilippines. By the way, a 30Php entrance fee is required to enter and see the beauty of the fort. If you're a history junkie, Cebu is a must-see place for you because of its overflowing history of the Philippines. Almost everything starts here. So don't doubt to include in your itineraries and visit one of these days the Queen City of the South.
