The history that made Cebu a better place for everyone. It’s no wonder why this island in the Central Visayas Region is called as the Queen City of the South.

Located at the heart of Cebu City, is a house, presently called as “Casa Gorordo” that was built in the 1850s and originally owned by Alejandro Reynes y Rosales. The house was then bought by a merchant from Vizcaya in Spain named Isidro Gorordo, and four generations of the Gorordo family have lived in this house, and this includes the first Filipino bishop of Cebu named Juan Gorordo. That is where the present name came from.

This Casa Gorordo Museum Cebu is located at Lopez Jaena Street, Parian, Cebu City. [Photo Credits by:  Steemit]

Base on the history I have learned, Casa Gorordo majestically serves as a definite illustration of the Spanish colonial era house locally known as “Balay nga Tisa” or in English, “House with tiled roof”. This Cebu Casa Gorordo Museum is also made of coral stone blocks, and molave hardwood flooring.

The unique architectural design of Casa Gorordo Museum, combines both native Spanish and Chinese influences which entices hundreds of tourists who visit in the city. You can also see variety of century-old paintings that are mounted and displayed inside the said museum. Also, the blending of the cultures from east and west is referred to “mestizo” that defines the character and identity of Filipinos.

Back to its name Virgin Island. When we hear virgin, there’s one meaning that comes into our mind—untouched. You read it right. Virgin Island is not like the other islands in the Philippines that are highly developed. However, the place reclaims its beauty as this island gives us another meaning of the word “virgin”.
