The facade of the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño, along with its belfry which was damaged during the 7.2-earthquake that shook up Cebu over two years ago, has been spruced up.

The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) led by its chairperson Maria Serena Diokno formally turned-over the newly restored Fort San Pedro to the Cebu City Government headed by Mayor Michael Lopez Rama last Tuesday afternoon October 27, 2015.

The enhancements done in Fort San Pedro included the structural restoration of the fort walls and bastions, site development with the main entrance and the museum, landscaping, improvement of the courtyard and installation of new tiling and flooring, putting-up a hand washing area and repair of the plumbing and drainage including the comfort rooms better equipped as a tourist destination, among others.

Located at the highlands of Busay, Cebu City, the Temple of Leah is an instant tourist attraction as it interestingly resembles ancient pantheons. Moreover, it also gives a great view- overlooking the cities of Cebu, Mandaue and Lapu-Lapu.

A significant work of art though not religious in nature but a sign of love from a husband to his beloved wife who is already in heaven.

Cebu is not just for Roman Catholics. Other faiths are thriving here. We still have to post other religious buildings - Hindu temple, Mosque and others. :banana:

^^ btw .. Q Park is owned by Dr. Quisumbing, the same owner of Norkis Motors.. the complex is composed of more than 10 hills in which the middle hill has the very large Our Lady of Peace statue... some steep 500 steps below it is the replica of Mary's House in Ephesus and further down @ 300m from the House is a Large Chapel.. there are also stations of the cross and other structures scattered in different hills .. 1km from the chapel is the complex gate entrance which is a good 2-3km from the main highway .... :cheers:

Aside from the shoes, rice cracker and pork rind that Carcar City is famous of, it was once a prosperous town equal only to Cebu City during the Spanish period. Several colonial Spanish and American buildings still stand today all over the city.
