“Praising God”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Giving honor and praise to where it is due. I have goosebumps every time I visit this place. The richness in history and faith of this place endeared this place to all Filipinos.

“Fantastic idol, Ok church”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

The church itself is quite nice, but in an unfortunate state following the earthquake. This meant that we were unable to enter into the main building while repairs are being done. The chapel of Santo Nino is still open and the iconic statue is well worth the queue to go an see it. Otherwise, right now, all you can do is sit in the courtyard of the cloisters.

Worth a visit, but don't expect too much.

“Historical Cebu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

I felt the strong faith and devotion of many Cebuanos. A wide quadrangle can be seen in front of the Basilica where masses are sometimes held. A little disadvantage is the crowd, but is not at all surprising since this is a place of worship, especially for devotees.

“lucky enough to see the belfry prior to the damage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

one of the known tourist spots actully this is close to the magellan's cross. the altar is adorable this is a beautiful church to compare to the other churches. we are just lucky enough to have our last glimpse to its belfry before the damage caused by earth quake.
