Castle
Fort San Pedro is located next to the port and is also known as the ancient castle of the Philippines with the Castle of San Diego in Manila, which was built when Spain first arrived in the Philippines. During World War II, the castle was used to defend against the Japanese army. The barracks used as military officers during the US military rule were now converted into school classrooms. The San Pedro Fort next to the pier was the first station in Spain to enter Cebu, which was later converted into a memorial park.

Taoist Temple
In 1972 the local Chinese community built this large, colorful Philippine Taoist Temple in Cebu City. Both worshippers and non-worshippers can enter the temple free of charge. Every child in the city makes a field trip here sometime during grade school. Many believers seek guidance on life choices here through various rituals or from the monks of the temple. .Whether a believer or not, you find this a clean, quiet place for meditation. You can take pictures of the exterior, but signs prohibit taking photos inside, and security guards do enforce this regulation.
