Historic Mactan and Cebu Tourist Spots | Shared Tour with Lunch

See the historic highlights of Cebu tourist attractions in this budget-friendly day tour. Covering important sites in both Cebu City and Mactan, this trip is perfect for those who are interested in history and culture.

You will be picked up from your accommodation in the morning along with the others joining the tour. At your first stop, you will see two of Mactan’s most important landmarks: Lapu-Lapu Monument and Magellan’s Shrine. These commemorate the Battle of Mactan, where a native chieftain, Lapu-Lapu, defeated the Spanish colonizers led by Ferdinand Magellan.

You will then head to Alegre Guitar Factory, a family business that has been producing world-class guitars for generations. Observe how skilled craftsmen make these musical instruments from scratch, and of course, you can buy one to take home!

You will then head to Cebu City, where you will check out the Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House. This structure is said to be the oldest Chinese house built outside China. You will also visit the Heritage Monument; it depicts important events in the history of the province through sculptures.

From there, you will go to Basilica Minore Del Sto. Niño, the oldest Roman Catholic church in the country. This place of worship houses the Sto. Niño de Cebu, the oldest Catholic relic in the Philippines.

Another landmark you will see is Magellan’s Cross; it celebrates the birth of Catholicism in the country. Magellan brought the cross with him in 1521, when the Spanish arrived in the Philippines. Then, depending on the size of the group, your last stop will either be the Taoist Temple or Pedro Calungsod Chapel.
