Description

Take on a journey of faith, and visit centuries old churches and shrines that make Cebu a "Pilgrimage City" visited by every Filipino. First stop is the Basilica Minore of the Santo NiƱo, a coral stone church and home of the original statue of the Child Jesus - the baptismal gift of Ferdinand Magellan to Queen Juana, the first Filipina local royalty to be converted to Christianity.

Follow the Heritage Trail and visit Cebu's elegant and beautiful Metropolitan Cathedral and Museum, where sacred treasures are well preserved. Then drive to a shrine in the quiet neighborhood of the Cardinal's Palace and learn about the young Pedro Calungsod - a Cebuano martyr who died at the age of 18 years and was Beatified by Pope John Paul II during the Jubilee year of 2000. Continue your pilgrimage to the Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and drive down to the small cave where the original image was found by a local trapper of wild chicken.

Travel on to Mandaue City and visit the church of St. Joseph The Worker, the second of three national shrines located in the Province of Cebu. See the life-sized marble statues of Jesus and his Disciples at the Last Supper. Drive around the city center before crossing over to Mactan Island to visit the Shrine of the Our Lady of The Rule in Mactan. The reunification of the Holy Famil, is depicted in a journey by water during the fluvial parade of the annual Sinulog Festival. Take a short time to offer prayers, light a candle or ask a church devotee to dance for your prayer-wishes.
