Magellan’s Cross: Cebu City Living Legend

Related Searches:

The Magellan's Cross in Cebu City serves as a symbol of how Christianity started in the Philippine Islands.

It was back on April 21, 1521 when a European explorer under the name of Fernando Magallanes, or Ferdinand Magellan from Portugal (but working under the monarchy of Spain) landed on the rich island of Cebu. He actually met and befriended the native chief, Raja Humabon that time. Both of them went well, and as a matter of fact, Raja Humabon accepted Christianity and let him and his men be baptized. As a sign of this significant event in the history of Cebu, Ferdinand Magellan planted a cross as an insignia of the spread of Christianity on the island. Now, this cross known as the “Magellan’s Cross” is a key tourist destination in Cebu.

Basilica del Sto. Nino: Cebu Church Legacy

Basilica del Sto. Nino, another Cebu church, is indeed one of the must-see historical tourist attractions in Cebu. 

The Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino of Cebu is a church and convent located just across one block from Cebu Cathedral and another famous Cebu tourist spot, the Magellan’s Cross. It was said to be built according to the urban plans by Legaspi to allocate a piece of land where a church must be constructed on that lot where the relic of Sto. Nino was found. The image of Sto. Nino was a sculpture being the Holy Child Jesus, discovered and preserved inside a wooden box by Spanish expeditors where it was left behind after some years. Now, Basilica del Sto. Nino in Cebu City drives in flocks of devotees and tourists who faithfully believe in the miracles and power of Sto. Nino.

Cebu Cathedral: A Piece of Inheritance

Cebu Cathedral in Cebu City is indeed a piece of inheritance devoted to the Cebuanos.

The Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral in Cebu City is one of the many historical landmarks that tourists can visit in this rich province of Cebu in the Central Philippines. Not only does it serve as a tourist spot for travelers and visitors, it also serves as a great worship place for Christians who are solely devoted to their religiousness. Cebu Cathedral is also a piece of inheritance from the past, as it had undergone a series of construction-reconstruction phases from bishops and leaders over their inductive-deductive reasons to build the church near the Parian district of Cebu City.

Lost in Ambuklao! A Benguet Dam Video Story

I've never seen a "dam thing" before (yes it's "dam" or water reservoir) and to see one is a goal. It's my first time last Baguio Day to go to Ambuklao Dam in  Benguet. I went there alone and I did it successfully. It's my first solo flight travel and believe it or not, I was the only traveler when I went there. My first solo travel plus my first time to see an awesome water reservoir (hmmm maybe I can compare it to Mt. Pinatubo's crater lake) plus I was the only traveler plus my first time to make HD travel video for Travex Travels! A bunch of "first times" for me and another page of Philippine wonders for you. If you have never seen one like this before, try to see it this year!
