Temple of Leah, Cebu City

3.2
#7 of 11 in Historic Sites in Cebu City
Explore Temple of Leah, a tribute to unconditional love whose design was inspired by Greek mythology. Teodorico Adarna built the mansion in 2012 as a symbol of his undying love for his wife, with the temple boasting a museum, a library, and an art gallery. The mansion also offers incredible views over the surrounding area, which you can enjoy by climbing the stairs. Figures of lions guard each of the paths leading to these views. While climbing the grand stairs, take a photo of the brass angel figures that you'll see along the way. Keep an eye out for the 3 m (10 ft) tall statue of the queen of the temple, which depicts her wearing a crown and a flower.

    Went here after Sirao and I must say that the edifice is very impressive. It will take you out of Cebu. The structure is Greece-ish, the view above the city is magnificent and the ambiance is so roman...  more »

    Not bad, not too great either. The building is not yet finished and there's too many people wanting to get their selfies on that it gets a bit chaotic. A good place to start if you're into Greek classical architecture.

    Its a private place. The family of the monument is rebuilding and renewing all ... A lot heart and good ferling and many many dollars to invest... So go there and help with your entrance fee the fast rebuilding of this fantastic place

    The place is not 100% ready for viewing or for visitors. There are a lot of areas that they are still constructing. The pillars are also not dine yet. Though the place is good is you want an overlooking place. But if you want a Greek ambiance, maybe you can visit later when all their modifications are done.

    It's ok. Not great. It's small and there's too really not much to do. It's just a place to take some pictures but you really can't be here for more than an hour or so. The real complaint I have us getting up here. The motorcycle drivers that take you up will try to rip you off be careful. It should cost at most 50 pesos each way per person.

    What's a wonderful place. Astonishing mythological Greece palace. Work in progress, need many more years before completion.

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.
