Cebu is brimming with history and culture everywhere you look. If you're interested in delving into the past while on your Cebu vacation, pay a visit to the Basilica of Santo Niño, an impressive church with hundreds of years of history. Here you can see the statue of the Santo Niño, said to have been gifted to Queen Juana of Spain on her baptism. To learn more about the Spanish exploration of the Philippines, you can book Cebu rental cars to drive to nearby Mactan and see the Lapu-Lapu Monument, which commemorates Magellan's defeat in 1521.
Festivals and Events
The most prominent annual festival held on Cebu is Sinulog, which takes place on the third Sunday of January. Dance along to the music in the streets of Cebu City while enjoying a plentiful selection of authentic Philippine cuisine. The festival culminates in the fascinating Fiesta Señor parade, so be sure to bring a camera to take pictures for your friends back home. Another major event is the Kadaugan sa Mactan, which is a week-long festival held in April in honor of Chieftain Lapu-Lapu and the famous Battle of Mactan. There'll be plenty of live bands and street food to keep you busy until you're ready to check in at your hotel in Cebu.
