Day two in Cebu: The Mandatory Stops
We were supposed to watch the Pacquiao-Bradley fight and then go to Portofino Beach as recommended by some locals, but then we overslept and when we woke up, it’s already time for lunch.
We met with Alex’s tita who’s very nice and eager to show us around. We had no idea where to go. Alex wanted to visit the Taoist Temple, so that was our first stop.
The place doesn’t look like it’s in Cebu. It’s like we were in China.
Magellan’s Cross and Basilica Minore del Santo Niño
After our short visit to the Taoist Temple, we headed downtown to visit the historical Magellan’s Cross (a must for Cebu travelers) and the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño (simply known as Sto. Niño Church).
I do have a picture of me at Magellan’s Cross when I was a kid. I better find that one.
Outside the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño are lots of vendors, which is not so different from the churches in Manila like the Quiapo Church and the Manila Cathedral.
Cebu Lechon: World’s Best Pig
One thing we noticed during our stay is Cebu is that we were always hungry. After our stop at the Magellan’s Cross it was time to try the famous Cebu lechon at CnT – home of the best Cebu lechon!
