The MAGELLAN CROSS in Cebu City

     Magellan Cross is another tourist destination in Cebu City. It is situated near the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño in Magallanes Street (Magallanes being the spanish name of Magellan), just in front of the city center of Cebu City.

     The spot is the area where Magellan planted a cross on April 21, 1521 to signify the important event about the propagation of the Roman Catholic faith, in what is now Cebu.

     The original cross was encased in another wood cross made from tindalo wood to protect the original cross from people who chipped away parts of the cross for souvenir and some people believe that the cross possesses miraculous healing power. Now, the cross is secured inside a small chapel called "kiosk".

     When you get inside the chapel you can see some women's wearing yellow dress they are dancing and bringing some colored candles and offer prayers to the tourist.

      Travel the world and visit the Magellan Cross in Cebu City and experience the Fun in the Philippines.
