Ferdinand Magellan came to Cebu in April 1521, claiming it for King Phillip of Spain and planting a cross to symbolize its Christianization. Experience his world as you join us on a journey through time.

After a hotel pick-up, we start the tour from Cebu's icon, Magellan's Cross, is the first stop on our journey. Proceeding to the Basilica Minore of the Christ Child, we will see the home of the image of Jesus as a child, Magellan´s baptismal gift to Queen Juana, the first Christian Filipina. Next we will travel to Fort San Pedro, a coral stone fortress originating from the original wooden structure built on the site in 1565. As protection to the city, it became the first Spanish settlement in Asia. As we drive to Plaza Parian via the country´s oldest street (Colon Street), we will make a short stop at Casa Gorordo. This museum showcases the elegant lifestyle of the Spanish/Filipino elite of the 18th century. A visit to Museo sa Sugbu will completed this portion of the tour.

Cross over to Mactan Island through the industrial city of Mandaue, where many world class furniture factories are found. Our first stop in Mactan is the Church of our Lady of the Rule, a national shrine visited by many who attribute Mactan´s economic success to her devotion. Next we will visit a guitar factory to see how renowned Philippine guitars are made. Our final stop is the Liberty Shrine, erected on the battlefield where Magellan met his defeat at the hands of the chieftain of Mactan, Datu Lapu-Lapu. Today a larger-than-life statue of Lapu-Lapu towers over mangroves on the very shores of his triumphant battle.
