The Basilica Minore del Santo Nino in Cebu City is just a few walks away from Fort San Pedro and Magellan's Cross. It is where the miraculous Santo Nino de Cebu is enshrined - considered as the oldest religious relic in the Philippines. Given By Magellan to Queen Juana in 1521, the statue survived the times and since then Cebuanos have cherished and endeared the image.
The country's oldest church, the basilica was built in 1565 by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Fray de Urdaneta. Rebuilt and restored in due time, the church was finally conferred as Basilica in 1965.
