Proceed to the Basilica Minore of the Christ Child, where is displayed the image of Jesus as a child – a Magellan’s baptismal gift to Queen Juana, the first Christian Filipina.

Continue to Fort San Pedro, a military defence fort in Cebu, built during colonial Spanish period in 1565.

Next, visit a guitar factory to see how renowned Philippine guitars are made. The final stop is the Liberty Shrine, erected on the battlefield where Magellan met his defeat at the hands of the chieftain of Mactan, Datu Lapu-Lapu.
