The Old and the Remembered: 7 Top Historical Attractions in Cebu
Cebu may be a bustling metropolis, but its historical side should never be forgotten when you first visit and explore the city. It is, after all, home to the oldest street in the Philippines as well as the oldest church. Even with just a few hours to spare, a tour around the historical attractions is very much possible. From Mactan Cebu International Airport in Mactan Island, there are two alternatives. You can cross from Mactan Island to Cebu Island via the Marcelo Fernan Bridge. Be mindful of the time as on a regular day as some areas can be congested with traffic. On Sundays and holidays though, it is a quick 30 minute drive.
A quicker and cheaper alternative is by ferry from Muelle Osmena wharf across Virgen de la Regla Church, a 10 minute trip from the airport. The ferry plies Mactan Channel and docks at Pier 3, just 5 minutes away from these top 7 popular historical attractions of Cebu.
