Cebu in Pictures
I am trying to visit at least one Church in the Philippines each month and take pictures of it. Then display them on my Cebu Experience site. I hope to expand this to all of the Philippines one of these days, when I do, I’ll post the pictures here.
I will also include as much history and other information I can find. If nothing else, I include a narrative on my thoughts about the image.
This month I went to Cebu City and visited a church central to the growth of Christianity in the Philippines. This church was much influenced by Magellan’s visit to the area as Santo Nino, a statue depicting the Christ child, became seen as a miracle sent from God.
This history dates back to at least 1521 and included Magellan’s death shortly after converting the royals of Cebu to Christianity.
There a lot of street vendors in the area and we found some nice religious items hand carved from drift wood. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I’m having a lot of problems with my camera. I hope it doesn’t die before I am able to replace it!
