As a multi-ethnic archipelagic country, the Philippines was once a colonial country of Spain and the United States. After its independence on July 4, 1946, the Philippines still retains a large number of Western cultural heritage, whether it is a tangible architectural civilization or an intangible religious heritage. The Simara Temple in Cebu (also known as the Cathedral of the Himalayas) is the largest and most spectacular church in the area. Its architectural style is entirely European, making it seem as though you have stepped into Europe itself. The entire church is quite large. The castle is strangely shaped outside, but the interior is full of colours. Due to the influence of Western culture, the Temple of Simara also has colourful windows.

In Cebu, there is a seemingly inconspicuous castle called Fort San Pedro that is situated right next to the port and the Castle of San Diego in Manila. It is known as the oldest castle in the Philippines and was built when Spain first arrived in the country. During World Way 2, the castle was used to defend against the Japanese army. The barracks that were used for the officers are now used as classrooms. The castle also has a museum and a butterfly valley. In Duma, there are a lot of interesting old buildings. There are many opportunities there for taking pictures.

The Mangellan Cross is preserved in a small hall on Magellan Street, opposite the City Hall in Cebu. The people of Cebu have a strong belief in this historical cross. Every Sunday morning, thousands of men and women burn incense and pray for good luck. Behind the Magellan’s Cross is the Church of the Holy Child, the earliest church in the Philippines, which enshrines the statue of the baby brought by Magellan from Spain. This was a gift from the Magellan to the chief of Cebu. In the church, tourists and worshippers come and go. The most popular thing to see is the figure of the little baby.
