I like the way historian Gregorio Zaide described the Filipinos in a nutshell. He said, it is not unusual for Filipinos to look Oriental, be Catholic, have a Spanish last name, an American nickname, and speak American English. It's even more interesting to revisit our past, something that I have never done in the pages of this blog with regards to places from my country. Not thoroughly, at least.
|At the court yard garden.|
Small chapel encasing the statue of the Santo Nino.
Walk these hallways (above and below) to get beside the "altar" where one could touch the glass that encases the Holy Child's statue that dates back to 1518.
A green space found between the hallways.
Statues of saints abound inside the basilica.
Schedule of masses at the Basilica del Santo Nino which offers these services in two languages: the local dialect called Cebuano and English. Schedule of Confessions also listed here.
The way out...
