50. A layover to a solemn shrine
Sacred and downright beautiful, the Simala Shrine is a splendid monastery with a medieval castle-like architecture. Known as a miraculous church, Simala Shrine is usually flocked with pilgrims who would pray and show their devotions to Mother Mary.
Cebu, as a booming city and a sought-after tourist destination, is oozing with pleasures, bonanzas and excitement in every corner. And to be honest, the suggestions shared in this list are just the tip of the iceberg. Despite its relatively small size, there are hundreds of treasures and exciting things you can do in the “Queen City of the South” and its nearby areas. I could list a hundred of them, but unfortunately I don’t have much time to do that. On the bright side, I’ll be sharing more about Cebu on the next posts. Till next time. Ayu ayu bai!
