Magellan’s Cross

십자가

Magellan’s Cross is one of the most famous historical landmarks in Cebu City. Housed in an octagonal pavilion made up of adobe and red tiles, many tourists have regularly visited the cross. It is located in front of the Cebu City Hall, near the Basilica Minore Del Sto. Nino at Magallanes Street is named after Magellan.

On March 15, 1521, when Ferdinand Magellan, a Portuguese navigator, worked for the King of Spain, together with his crew, arrived in Cebu. Right there, he met and befriended Rajah Humabon, the then chieftain of Cebu. Magellan persuaded Humabon, his wife Queen Juana, and their native people to accept Christianity and baptize them as Christians.

To commemorate such an important event on propagating the Roman Catholic faith in the Philippines, Magellan planted a wooden cross on April 14, 1521, on Cebu’s shores. Since then, the cross has been known as the Magellan’s Cross.

The cross back then was believed to have miraculous healing power, so the people started to take pieces of it until it began to fall apart. The government, who was aware of the incident, built another wooden cross made from tindalo to enclose the original cross and protect it.

However, it was rumored that the cross encased inside the tindalo wood is nothing but a replica planted there by the Spaniards who came after Magellan’s death. The original cross was said to have been stolen or destroyed after Magellan passed away.
