We missed the English mass and settled for a mass in the vernacular. While the mass as ongoing, we couldn't help but be astounded by the beauty of this really old stone church in idyllic Argao. We were pleasantly surprised to find out later that...More

The Argao church or the Saint Michael the Archangel Parish church was built in 1734. The facade is made of sand and coral stones making it appear white. It has a simple Baroque architecture, if there’s such thing. The church is just 8-minute walk from...More

BEST place to live when you retire from the city's unfriendly, not so healthy nature. People are so warm and generous. This is the ONE and ONLY HOME for the BEST and MOST DELICIOUS TORTA IN THE ENTIRE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES...BAR NONE

South Cebu is good for heritage tour and perfect for religious activities. Argao should not be missed for both reasons. Argao is not famous for the church, but for their torta (which taste I cannot comprehend!) Any tips or info how their torta was made?...More
