Very interesting place to visit. The church itself is beautiful. The altar is quite impressive. Of course, the Sto. Nino is a must see.

Magnificent .. so beautiful old Cathedral built in 1565. It's fascinating to see collections of Sto Niño customs,antique objects are on display like ceremonial capes and jewelries, furnitures, priests vestments. This Church museum showcases the history of Christianity in Cebu.
