Magellan's Cross is a small structure with a big cross inside and a painted ceiling. It is located just outside the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino. There are lots of snatchers and beggars outside so be careful!
According to history books, this is not the real cross nor the real place where Ferdinand Magellan planted the cross in the Philippines. It is believed to be somewhere else (another island in the Visayas region).
If you have plans of going to the Basilica, you might as well visit Magellan's Cross. But if you do not have any plan of dropping by the area, it wouldn't hurt not to visit Magellan's Cross.
