Get Intimate with the Queen City Of the South

San Fernando Church


I dropped by the town church of San Fernando today. I’ve seen this church so many times before but I’ve never really had the chance to stop by, get in, and just absorb its awesomeness. And I must say that I am very happy that I finally stepped on the brakes today and take some photos of this gem.

The church is situated right next to the South National Road. It’s hard to miss, actually. Well, a structure as gorgeous as this is very hard to miss. Aside from the fact that it’s just across the town hall, the architecture is also something all Cebuanos should be really proud of! I mean, just take a look at that! If that doesn’t blow your mind away, I don’t know what else would. LOL.

Nice piece of work. The pillars and walls look really strong.

I’m not exactly sure what this is. For ventilation, perhaps?

Nice details. And that plant looks cool. I like old structures with plants growing in their small holes and cracks. Hehe.

    looks like a nice place to go see…. i just did not realized alot of the spanish influenzed architecture in Cebu this were just the things i took for granted while i was there, getting matured i learned to love vintage/antique stuff… i am just now learning to admire vintage things and how we can save the environment by going green, saving the forest by refurbishing old/sturdy furniture to help stop cutting of trees for furniture purposes….

    Their church looks cute to me, the structure kinda similar to Mingla church.
    I like the walls, its unusual. I think that Saint is San Isidro.
    Carmen Church still under renovation.
