Magellan's Cross

The Cross of Magellan is a popular historical landmark and tourist attraction in the middle of busy Magellanes Street. This important symbol of Cebu was planted by Magellan in April 14, 1521 when he baptised the first Christian Filipinos, RajahHumabon and Queen Juana and about 400 followers into the Catholic faith.

The cross is now housed in a roofed kiosk in Magallanes Street. To protect it further, the original cross was encased in a cross of hollow tindalo wood which still stands today.
