Magellan's Cross is just located outside Basilica Minore de Santo Niño. You need to get inside the structure to see paintings on the ceiling which will tell you about the history on how it was erected. It is said that the original cross has already been covered because many believed that a piece of the original cross can make miracle. You can also read the history of the erection of the Magellan's Cross engraved just below the cross.
This is a historical place in the Philippines. It is where the Christianity in the Philippines were brought for the first time. The original cross is inside this big cross in the picture. They did it for protection and to preserve it as well. There will be ladies there who. Would offer to pray for you for only $2. They will pray in front of you in their own language. All you have to do os give your name and they will pray in like a singing manner. It is quite entertaining. It is a must visit in Cebu especially if you are into history and religion.
wonderful. a must visit place
Nice and most historical place around The city next back door to Sto Niño
Magellans's Cross is a very historical site and also sits close to the Church of Santo Nino. The site of the cross has been kept beautifully and the church is quite breath taking! The entrance fee is small and there were many visitors. I recommend experiencing this site because it is also one of the best places to be close to the history of the Philippines.
