Part of my tour of Cebu City was a visit to the Minor Basilica of the Holy Child. Much of the belfry was damaged in an October 2013 earthquake. The picture above shows the locations of the plaque, the coat of arms (on the ground), the entrance, and the arch shown in the pictures below.

The tour guide only gave us a few minutes to look at the church. I was only able to take one picture of the ceiling. I was not able to pass by the museum or the library.

The image of the Sto. Niño shown below was given by Magellan on April 14, 1521 and is considered the oldest religious relic in the Philippines. (A security guard prevented me from taking a closer picture.)
