Magellan's Cross, Symbol of Cebu
Ever since my Childhood days, the Magellan's Cross has long been my marker for Cebu. I told myself before that If ever I will be traveling to Cebu, the first thing I should go to is the Magellan's Cross because if ever I will not get the chance to see it, then I'm doomed, it's like I have never been to Cebu at all!
So as we arrived at the Basilica for prayer and for some pictures, I asked the Security Guard just outside the church on how we can go to the Magellan's Cross from there. Then I was surprised to know that we need not have to ride a jeep nor have a long walk because the Cross is just a few yards away from the church, just beside it actually, at Magallanes Street (Magallenes, named after Magellan's Spanish Name) So as we walked along the road from the church to the Convent and till we reach this Arch like structure, there it was, the Magellan's Cross.
