Affordable Rent to Own Condo in Cebu City





Condominiums for sale in Cebu range from as low as Php1.2 million to as high as Php65 million. Prices usually depend on the size, location, and developer of the condominium project. Of course, the bigger and better it is, the more expensive it could be. Renting a condominium unit, on the other hand, can range from as low as Php1,000 a month to as high as Php300,000 a month. Cheap condominiums would often be small, unfurnished, or located in places far from the key places in the city. On the other hand, condominiums with a price tag of over Php100,000 would likely be luxuriously furnished, spacious, and situated in locations situated at or within a short walk from the business parks and centers in the city or in the upper class areas.

The City of Cebu is, perhaps, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Visayas region. It is a highly urbanized city in the Province of Cebu that gives off the familiar city vibe of Manila or any other city in the Metro.

With a population of 922,611 (as of 2015), Cebu is the most populated city in the Visayas region, and the fifth most populated city in the country. Metropolitan Cebu, however, which includes the nearby cities and municipalities in the area has a population of 2,849,213 (as of 2015).

The City of Cebu is the second largest city in the country, and was once the capital of the Philippines during the Spanish colonization. It is known as the “Fount of Christianity”, since the first colonized settlement in the country once stood upon where the city stands today.

Cebu is famous in history and in modern culture. It is remembered as the place where Ferdinand Magellan, a Portuguese national travelling under the flag of the Spanish Crown, first landed in his journey to the Spice Islands in 1521. Although the legends tell us that Magellan and his Spanish crew were thwarted by the natives led by Lapu-Lapu, his presence and interaction with the native leaders during his short stay in Cebu had already sowed the seeds of the Christian faith into the people he dealt with.

These seeds were then reaped by the expedition led by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi in the 1560s, and by the settlement of Christian missionaries in various areas in the then unnamed archipelago. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, Cebu is known as the Fount of the Catholic faith in the country, considering that everything that made the Philippines what it is today began with that fateful day in March 1521. From our status as a progressive independent people, we were then colonized by the Spanish and the Americans, thereby influencing our ancestors’ culture and way of life.


What to do in Cebu?

Apart from its rich and colorful history, the city boasts attractions that would surely pique the interests of tourists and locals alike. Cebu is home to several religious and historical sites, perhaps the most famous of which is the Magellan’s Cross, which is housed in a quaint chapel beside the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino. Although the site has garnered fame throughout the years, there are theories relating to the possibility that the Cross that stands in the Basilica’s chapel is a mere replica of the original cross that is said to have been placed thereon by Magellan himself. It is speculated that the original cross was either lost or destroyed. The marker beneath the cross, however, says that the Cross standing in the chapel actually encases the original cross that Magellan placed there in 1521.

The Cathedral Museum of Cebu, on the other hand, is an ecclesiastical museum showcasing not only the beauty of its architecture, but also the variety of religious relics that have been found in the region. Several other churches may also be found outside the city proper, including the Simala-Lindogon Church that features a majestic palatial façade. The church is also known as the Shrine of the Miraculous Mama Mary. Other attractions that may be found in and around the city include the Taoist Temple, which features several Chinese temples and a view of a portion of the City. The Temple of Leah, on the other hand, serves as the city’s tribute to love. The temple was built atop a hill in 2012 by Teodorico Adarna in commemoration of his late wife, Leah Albino-Adarna, and houses the memory and the treasures that remind him of his wife’s life and her place in his. It might be interesting to know that Teodorico and Leah Adarna are the grandparents of Ellen Adarna, the sexy model and actress.

Another thing to look out for in Cebu is the food. Of course, Cebu-style lechon is still as popular as it likely was when it was first made available on the market. Restaurants around Cebu would likely have its own Cebu-style lechon. Popular lechon restaurants in Cebu include: Rico’s Lechon, House of Lechon, CnT Lechon, Carcar’s Lechon, Alejo’s Lechon, Cebu’s Boneless Lechon, Chona’s Lechon, and Zubuchon. So far, few of these restaurants have branched out to areas in Manila. Zubuchon, for instance, has a branch in Makati.
