Magellan's Cross | Cebu City, Philippines

Rate the Magellan's Cross in Cebu City, Philippines

Quote:
Originally Posted by Wikipedia
Magellan's Cross is a large Christian cross planted by Portuguese and Spanish explorers as ordered by Ferdinand Magellan upon arriving in Cebu in the Philippines in 1521.

The cross is housed in a small chapel next to the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño on Magallanes Street (Magallanes being the Spanish name of Magellan), just in front of the city hall of Cebu City. A sign outside claims that the original cross is encased inside the wooden cross that is found in the center of this chapel. This is to protect the original cross from people who chipped away parts of the cross for sourvenir purposes or in the belief that the cross possesses miraculous powers. Some people, however, believe that the original cross had been destroyed or had disappeared after Magellan's death, and the cross is a replica that was planted there by the Spaniards after they successfully colonized the Philippines.

Magellan's Cross is a symbol of Cebu City and the chapel's image can be found in its city seal. It is also seen as the symbol of Roman Catholicism in the Philippines.

I gave this an 8. Simple yet functional and also because of it's importance. Although I think the structure housing Magellan's Cross needs a little conservation and NOT RENOVATION. And the area surrounding it needs improvement. Maybe landscaping and some flowers. Like a mini plaza or park.
