Must-go for the Sinulog

Was there to see the morning mass during the Sinulog festival. It is a must-go for the festival. Lots of street stalls and activities in the surrounding areas.

This is an amazing place... An active church where thousands come to worship, and a national historic treasure. Worth checking out, and attend a service if you can. Be sure and check out Magellan's Cross also. (It's right there)

The Main highlight is the Sinulog Festival in the month of January. Basilica del Santo Nino is place where you can find a solemn place to pray. One of the best religious attraction in Cebu.

I only toured the outside. It was interesting. I believe it's based off of the statue located outside of Rio de Janeiro. There are excellent views of Lisbon.

I'm glad I went to visit. Although it was very busy when we got there. It was well worth the wait. I got to pray at that place; finally.
