BEST place to live when you retire from the city's unfriendly, not so healthy nature. People are so warm and generous. This is the ONE and ONLY HOME for the BEST and MOST DELICIOUS TORTA IN THE ENTIRE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES...BAR NONE

well worth a visit, easy to imagine how the place looked a century or so ago. Just a pleasant walk away from the beach.

South Cebu is good for heritage tour and perfect for religious activities. Argao should not be missed for both reasons. Argao is not famous for the church, but for their torta (which taste I cannot comprehend!) Any tips or info how their torta was made?...More

Rally nice old church and park. Very old and is near 19th century Spanish church which is now the hall of justice. Inside you will find amazing fading art and many bats living high above the alter. Gives the place many sensations.
