Cebu, located in the center of the Visayas, consists of 167 islands. It is the second avenue connecting the Philippines to the world. I recommend visiting Magellan's Cross, Santiago de Cuba and Carbon Market. From these local landmarks, you can get a taste of some unique Southeast Asian lifestyles.
Would you ever believe that the original cross from 1521 is still encased inside the wooden cross? That’s what experts says. Some people says it’s only a replica others says it’s destroyed. The cross is located in Magellan’s Cross besides Basilica Menor del Santo Niño de Cebu.
Cebu’s famous history about Magellan and Lapu-Lapu as Lapu-Lapu is one of Philippines greatest heroes for his bravery to resist Spanish colonization.
