  • The history of roman catholic church in cebu items from 16th century to 20th century museum
  • You will learn so much history and interesting tidbits from the museum guide here (Gab). Not sure if he is still around though... last time I visited was 2012.
  • Popular tourist spot and best place to visit to get to know the culture and history of Cebu.
  • I was amazed of the collection of the "reboltos" with glass eyes. The changes in the convent, and Cardinal Vidal's life as a priest. Take a look also in the garden, it is a nice place to hold your wedding reception and other events.
  • a perfect place to know about Cebu's rich history

Where to stay in Cebu City

The most popular place to stay in Cebu City remains uptown, particularly around the university district near Junquera Street station. Here you'll find a good range of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses of varying quality, but with a well-established base level representing value for money. Further north, look along Dalan Osmena to find a good number of standard and luxury hotels located north and south of the roundabout. The downtown area has more closely knitted streets, with just a few guesthouses located along primarily residential roads.
