Historical Site
EnjoyTripMagellan'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.

yangduoduo17After we participated in the whale shark tour, we decided to visit the tumalog waterfall. You have to take a motorcycle or walk down the mountain to get there. The one-way ride by car costs 75 pesos, and there is another drop-off point at the top. Each person needs an extra bike to take you to the next 1/4 mile. This is the cost that tourists will spend anyway. When you get there, the waterfall is quite spectacular, 100 feet high and 60 feet wide, with no artificial traces of natural beauty. Dip your feet in the lower water and let the fish eat your dead skin. What a wonderful view, a must-visit attraction in oslob.

DanaCasa Gorordo was the 3rd Museum I've been to in Cebu City. I loved my visit to Casa Gorordo because it is such a well-preserved place. The furnitures were still in good quality and pretty, the beds and the clothings featured inside the house were still neat and clean. It really shows the actual life during the 1800s. If one wants to time travel back to the Spanish Colonization era of the Philippines, visiting places like Casa Gorordo is a great way to go. Casa Gorordo is located in Parian, Downtown Cebu, opens daily, and I think they have an entrance fee. I am not quite sure because I went there for free c/o my Young Minds Academy program.
