Cebu Day 1: Fort San Pedro

While having brunch, I was telling Ron that I wanted to go back to Sto. Niño Church and told him of the museums, Fort San Pedro and of course the Magellan's Cross beside it. 

So we loaded a jeepney from SM going to Sto. Niño Church.  But just in time we are in the jeep, rain poured.  I was muttering short prayers that the rain would stop from the time on til we saw a park and an old fortress and since the Lord heared my prayer, I told Ron that we check it out.

The old fortress is the Fort San Pedro.  Built by the Spanish to repel Muslim pirates and angry native, Fort San Pedro is considered to be the oldest and the smallest fort.  It is believed that at the fort, the Spaniards had its first settlement in the Philippines.  It was named after the flagship of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi.

We didn't have much chance to roam around because of the bad weather.  Good thing some personnel lend us an umbrella so we got to go to their small museum and altar for the Sto. Nino.  When rains stopped at a moment we had our pictures taken in the open area.

But basically we just waited for the rains to stop while listening to a blind man singing Cebuano songs, his heart out.
