The Magellan`s cross

 The Magellan Cross is considered to be one of the main attractions of Cebu, the capital of the island. It is located in a small chapel near the Basilica of Santo Nino, the oldest church in the Philippines, on Magallanos Street in front of the city administration building. This Christian cross was installed on the island of Cebu in 1521 by Portuguese and Spanish sailors by the order of Fernand Magellan. Magellan was the first European to set foot on the land of the Philippines. He ordered the establishment of a wooden cross to perpetuate the adoption of Christianity by the Raja of the island of Humabon, his wife and warriors.
The Magellan cross
    To keep it an octagon-shaped chapel was built in 1834. In this chapel you can see the frescoes, depicting the process of the establishment of the cross by Magellan himself. The Magellan cross is a symbol of the city. It is depicted on the city seal. There is a belief that the cross has healing power, and if you touch it- it can cure ailments. At the foot of the cross, it is customary to light candles and leave coins.
