Tacloban was also once part of the Municipality of Basey, Samar....it was chosen as the permanent capital because of its strategic location plus its well sheltered port...all the developments that came afterward was mainly because of Imelda Marcos

But Palo is now back on track. It has the Government Center, where the National Government Agencies are located; the Leyte Information & Communications Technology Park (ICT Park), home of EV's first call center (i.e. APAC), and soon it will have its first 5-star hotel, Ivory Hotel (Mac Arthur Park Beach Resort)...

BALAANONG BAHANDI: Sacred Treasures of the Archdiocese of Cebu

To mark the Diamond Jubilee of the Archdiocese of Cebu, the Cathedral Museum of Cebu and the Archdiocesan Commission for the Cultural Heritage of the Church will soon launch the book Balaanong Bahandi: Sacred Treasures of the Archdiocese of Cebu.

Published in collaboration with University of San Carlos Press, Balaanong Bahandi continues the pioneering work of Fr. Felipe Redondo who first chronicled the history of the Catholic Faith in Cebu through the book entitled “Breve reseña de lo que fue y de lo que es la Diócesis de Cebú en las Islas Filipinas” published in 1886.

With excerpts from a translation of Redondo’s magnum opus, over 1,000 full color photographs interspersed with vintage pictures in 58 chapters bring together the Church’s treasured heritage: houses of faith that have not only withstood the vagaries of time and the elements but spawned new parishes.

Balaanong Bahandi is the ultimate guide to the Archdiocese’s architectural heritage, showcasing all the churches in Cebu from the earliest missions to contemporary parishes, including all of the outstanding artistry they contain: bas reliefs expressed in coral stone, carved images in ivory and wood, ceiling paintings by the famed Canuto Avila and Raymundo Francia, handwritten pages in canonical books, bronze bells, and many other tangible manifestations of over 400 years of Christianity in Cebu.

There are just a few copies left. Do grab one now!
