Somebody once told me that Cebu City has the oldest continuously used public market in the Philippines. That is the market in Colon Street which is also said to be one of the oldest street. :D
From the official website of the City Government of Cebu:
Cebu was known to be the enterprising and fishing village back in the days of the Chou-Ju-Kua and long before Magellan came to the Philippines in 1561. Sugbu, as the village was intimately called, had commerce relations with foreign merchants like those from Europe, Asia and even old Cathay. These merchants gave Cebu various names as ZUBU, ZEBU, SEBU and SIBUY.
BTW, after much googling I finally found out that Cebu comes from Sugbu, meaning "riverbank".

Fuente Osmena is a picturesque rotonda in the center of Cebu City. Early morning finds joggers and older people doing their tai-chi in the mini-park that surrounds the monument.
