Cebu City is a significant cultural center in the Philippines. The imprint of Spanish and Roman Catholic culture is evident. The city’s most famous landmark is Magellan’s Cross. This cross, now housed in a chapel, is reputed to have been erected by Ferdinand Magellan when he arrived in the Philippines in 1521.
A few steps away from Magellan’s Cross is the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño (Church of the Holy Child). The church, which was the first to be established in the islands, is built of hewn stone and features the country’s oldest relic, the figure of the Santo Niño.
Casa Gorordo is a house museum located in a historic area of Cebu. The house was acquired by the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. from the Gorordo family in 1979, renovated and enhanced, and opened to the public as a museum in 1983. Casa Gorordo Museum evokes the lifestyle of a family experiencing the transformation of the Philippines from a colonial to a modern society.
Fuerte de San Pedro is a military defense structure in Cebu, built by the Spanish. It is located in the area now called Plaza Indepedencia, in the pier area of the city.
