Visit the Basilica of Santo Nino
The Basilica of Santo Nino is one of Cebu’s most significant historical sites. With origins dating back to 1565, it’s a popular attraction for travellers. After burning down twice since its construction, the church standing today was built from stone in 1737.
One of the basilica’s most attractive elements is its architectural style. The facade is a blend of Muslim, Romanesque and Neo-Classical design, conveying a sense of simplicity and elegance. Wander past the Muslim-inspired bell tower before entering the centre section with its impressively arched main entrance. If you’re travelling to Cebu in January, be sure to join in on the celebrations of the colourful festival of Sinulog. Celebrated by the basilica every year, it’s the island’s largest event.
