Reviews Cebu City
Cebu City is located in the central eastern part of Cebu Province, an island
at the heart of the
Visayas in Southern Philippines.
Many changes occurred to Cebu City during the centuries: from a sleepy fishing village to a fledging trading port in 1521, from the first Spanish settlement named Villa del Santisimo Nombre de Jesus in 1575 to a municipality in 1901, Cebu finally became a chartered city on February 24th, 1937.
Cebu City is the first and the oldest city in the country, ante-dating Manila by 7 years, and is the cradle of Christianity in the Far East.
Today Cebu City is at the same time the main resort of the Visayas, the most densely populated island, a great commercial centre with an international harbour and the Philippine’s second city.
The Mactan-Cebu International Airport, located in Lapu-Lapu City, is only a twenty-minute drive away from Cebu City.
