Trip to Cebu Part II : Landmark Adventure

by - June 16, 2019







  

   Last week I posted my first water adventure in Cebu. Today my blog continues to post my journey in Cebu. anyway, Cebu has a lot of beautiful landmarks and awesome places so that's why I decide to go travel in Cebu. Check my previous blog title Trip to Cebu Part I: Water Adventure for my first solo travel ever. You can see a lot of beautiful falls and island and also if you have to go solo travel this blog is perfect for you kindly click the title and proceed 😊😊😊


   After making a selfie and swim in Sumilon Island were going to Cuartel Heritage Park here in Oslob Cebu. This is one of my favorite spots here in Cebu aside from the perfect view also Cuartel Heritage Park is one of the historical places here in Cebu. The located front right of the church of Oslob, just outside the perimeter stone fence and near the sea, at the intersection of Calle Aeternidad and the end of Calle Aragones, stands an unfinished building made of coral blocks resembling a Spanish-era barracks. This was intended to be the cuartel, barracks for Spanish soldiers or guardia civil. It was started about 1860 but remained unfinished at the end of Spanish occupation in 1898.

  After a few steps from Cuartel Heritage Park, you can see the church of Immaculate Conception here in Oslob Cebu. The church of cut coral stone was started in 1830 and finished 18 years later. The buttresses that were added between 1848 and 1850. The adjacent bell tower was built in 1858. The church was burned down during the Second World War liberating Philippine Commonwealth troops and Cebuano guerillas against the Japanese in Oslob in 1945, and 1955 but was eventually restored.
 Although Immaculate Conception went through many renovations after it was severely damaged in the past, it still evokes a sense of faith among locals and visitors. Its faΓ§ade may be simple, but it is quite imposing.

     Then after strolling from the Immaculate church were going to the baywalk side view one of my most favorite views here in Oslob Cebu perfect for family bonding and refreshing "Puedi mag muni muni dito ganon"

   From Oslob Cebu to Simala Shrine Sibonga Town, Southern Cebu. We take a ride 1 hour and a half going to Simila Shrine. One of the favorite tourist spots for many religious people honestly I don't want to go to this place because I'm not Catholic but I decide to go to kill my curiosity about this place. So what did you expect this place?

   Simala is a place for people who believe in miracles. This place has been known to be miraculous. The Monastery of the Holy Eucharist is a church in Sibonga for the Marian devotees. The church is very popular among believers not only because it is considered the home of the image of the miraculous Virgin but also because the place is truly amazing and spectacular. The Monastery is the place where the ‘Mga Monghe ni Maria’ [Monks of Mary] lives.

   As a realistic person I don't believe in Miracles but I should respect people for what their beliefs so before enter the church they ask me to change my clothes because I wear a jumper skirt which is not allowed to wear inside the church but good news because if you're not aware there's  a lot of vendor outside the church they rent a sarong for only 20 pesos to cover your legs amazing right?


  When I enter inside the Simala church they view looks peaceful and sacred makes me feel wow try to look at these pictures.




That's my wonderful trip in Cebu after South Cebu tour exactly 8 pm Kuya Dennis drop me at Salome Pension Hotel at Mandaue City 15 minutes going to Mactan Airport  at 3:30 am I book Grab going to Mactan airport although my flight is 6:50 am  I go early in Airport to take my early breakfast because I skip dinner so I ate breakfast before going to the departure area then exact 6:50 am the airplane flies then goodbye Cebu.



      Exactly May 26 ay 9 am I'm on my Home. It was an amazing trip for me I see lots of beautiful views and do a lot's of fun. I enjoy a lot even though I'm alone :) If you want to do something to enjoy yourself do it!

    The churches are so majestic! The Simala shrine is so massive! I have not been to Cebu yet, but both of my sons have been there. I wish they explored more of the place, but all they did there was to go to the beaches and swim with the whale sharks.
