Casa Gorordo Museum, Cebu: The Memoir of the Past

Cebu City is considered to be the most historic and the oldest city in the Philippines. It is rich not only in nature, but also rich in history. 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.

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.

Malapascua Island, Cebu: Treasure Chest of Visayas Region

Thinking where to go next for your vacation? I know a place in the Visayas region that will bring you a haven of fun!

In the northernmost tip of the province of Cebu, lies a magnificent small island called Malapascua. It is a tropical island that is located in Central Visayas. This island only measures two point five kilometers long and one kilometer wide.

The tranquillity of its crystal-clear water that crashes on the shoreline could give a relaxing sound to many. The fine white sand will be the witness of your happiness as you walk, run, and jump for joy. The wind that touches your skin is a fresh air that blows all your stress. Not just that. Malapascua Island’s weather is ideal for every backpacker who wants to be away from the busy metro. It is because this island is rarely hit by typhoons that enter the Philippine area—so, this means that you could visit the island any time of the year! No wonder why this magnificent island is described to be the little Boracay of Cebu.

If you are the type of person who is into SCUBA Diving, then this island is also for you! Malapascua Island, Cebu has been recognized as one of the diving spots in the Philippines. Thirty minutes away from its bountiful beach is the prime dive site called the Monad Shoal. This area is the only place in the world where Thresher sharks can be seen before sunrise. Malapascua Island’s Monad Shoal is believed to be the “cleaning station” of these sharks. That is, they come here to allow the local wrasse to remove parasites from their skin and to clean their gills and mouth.

SCUBA Diving with the Thresher Shark

In this area of Malapascua Island, divers could also see other marine life such as devil rays, eagle rays, manta rays, and hammerhead sharks at certain times of the year.

After having all those adventures and trails, the stomach will surely starve for something to eat. Malapascua Island is not as expensive as you were expecting! For as low as 50 pesos, you could have a rice meal. Of course, danggit (dried and salted rabbitfish) paired with fried rice, pickled papaya, and dipped in a spicy vinegar is one of the island’s delicacies you shouldn’t miss. It will give you the best island vibe, ever!
