At their highest point, these mountains rise to 1,000 meters. Cebu is situated 600 kilometers from the capital, Manila and is central to the Philippine archipelago.

The value of Cebu was first seen by the Chinese, who established it as a trading post in 900 AD. Once the Philippines had been colonized by the Spanish, Cebu was an obvious choice as the Philippines first city, due to its excellent location. Once established as the de facto capital in the Spanish colony, Cebu was a central location in the trading and shipping industries. This created a huge mix of cultures which existed amicably with the Malay influence. Throughout the 400-year duration of Spanish rule and a further 40 years of American influence, a uniquely cosmopolitan culture evolved.
Nowadays, people from all over the world live side by side with the local people in Cebu. Although nearly every religion is practiced in some form, Roman Catholicism is the main religion. For many of the mountain villagers, the pre-Spanish culture is still their way of life. This has been added to the mix of other cultures and produced extravaganzas of song and dance such as the Sinulog festival. The ways the foreign influences intertwine with local fore make for a truly wonderful celebration.
As the Philippines’ oldest city, Cebu can boast a huge selection of relics from the past. Its provincial warmth and charm is increased by its determination to hold on to its colorful history, while still growing in sophistication. The numerous man-made landmarks in Cebu are complemented by many miles of green forest areas, home to various species of wildlife and the perfect place to unwind.
