Being located in the same vicinity, at least three famous landmarks can be toured on
foot: Fort San Pedro, Magellan's Cross and Basilica del Sto. Ni?o. Historically, these
three are related to each other.
It is not difficult to find your way there. From anywhere in Cebu, the easiest is to
take a taxi. You may also ask the locals which jeepney will pass near the area.
Jeepneys in Cebu are coded with a number and letter combination depending on the route.
The locals would guide you about those jeepney numbers. But as you may have difficulty
familiarizing those codes, the simpler way is for you to just read the route written on
the sides. You are sure to reach your destination if you find "Magallanes" written on it.
Or you may have a map on hand and find which street are near those landmarks and take a
jeepney with that street name written on its side. If that route would not directly pass
by those landmarks, it is always fun to get off somewhere nearby and enjoy walking.
Wherever you get off, find either Osme?a Blvd..or Magallanes St. which are the two
streets flanking the Basilica. Magellan's cross is situated just at the south gate of
the Basilica. Walking southeast either at Magallanes St. or Osme?a Blvd toward the port area
and then through the pathways of Plaza Independencia will take you to Fort San Pedro.
If you can't speak Cebuano, I found that the locals are more comfortable answering if you
ask questions in English.
