The province of Cebu is filled with interesting historical places aside from the natural beauties it offers. Cebu is the birthplace of Christianity in the Philippines when Raja Humabon and Queen Juana accepted to be baptized by Magellan. So if you’re Catholic or in love with amazing architectural designs of beautiful churches, then you should visit these two churches in the South: Immaculate Conception Parish of Oslob and the Monastery of the Holy Eucharist in Simala Church

Immaculate Conception Parish

The church was designed by Bishop Santos Gomez Marañon, as it is written on the plaque that you’ll see in it. This is the massive church is one of the most beautiful churches that you can find in Cebu, and it is located in Oslob, Cebu. The materials used are of high quality and is truly durable despite the disasters that happen. The church is surrounded by historical structures and is the Spanish Cuartel. It is located on the right side of the church of Oslob. The Cuartel was built in the Spanish ear around the 1800s. It serves to be the barracks of Spanish Troops or Guardia Civil assigned in Oslob. However, when the Americans arrived in the Philippines, the Spanish left the place without finishing the construction.

It’s just amazing to think that the church has surpassed natural and human disasters. With large numbers of wars, earthquake and even typhoons but still, the church and the remains of the Cuartel are still intact.

Monastery of the Holy Eucharist
