City of Toledo, in Cebuano: Dakbayan sa Toledo or in Filipino: Lungsod ng Toledo, formerly known as Pueblo Hinulawan.
Who would have thought that 50 kilometers away from cebu, a maze can be seen from our naked eye? Well, I did not thought of that. Also, a museum near it is present. As the saying goes, “Hitting two birds with one stone”, Maze and Museum in one destination, right?
HOW TO GET THERE
By Bus. Just go to Cebu South Bus Terminal and find a bus with the sign Barili or Toledo on it. Fare is about PHP 83.00 ($2, €1,SGD 2). Get off at Capilla Santa Ana in Toledo. (Be sure to tell the driver that you are headed there!)
By Van. Ride the van at SM City Seaside Van terminal. Fare is about PHP 100 ($2, €1.7,SGD 2.5). Take a tricycle to get to Capilla Santa Ana Museum for only PHP 8 ($0.2, €0.2,SGD 0.3) per person.
By Private Car or Taxi.
Below is a map showing the route from Cebu South Bus Terminal to the Maze Garden and Museum
Maze Garden and Musuem at Toledo City, Cebu
Before entering, a guard will welcome you and tell you where to pay an ENTRANCE FEE of PHP 100.00 for adults or PHP 50.00 for students
As you can see in the picture above, the garden is trimmed properly.
This is my 2nd time visiting this place. I did not get the chance to take some pictures in my first visit because it was close. The guards did not let us in.
2nd time around, I walk around the maze and enjoy the green lush color it gives off. I have successfully visit this trending place in Cebu. They also call this place “Labyrinth”. It has a 20 meter diameter length. It has one entry and one exit. It is actually tiring to enter the maze and vice versa. But, the satisfaction you will get in finishing the maze will never be replaced with anything.
CAPILLA SANTA ANA MUSEUM
Beside the maze is the Capilla Santa Ana. This is totally a bonus place to wander on because this was not written in our itinerary.
A tour guide was not available during our visit so we wander on ourselves in our own pace. We saw some statues of different holy people. A spiral staircase was in the vicinity so we took the time to climbed onto it.
In the 2nd floor, a piano was present and different holy statues were present too. As you can see in the picture above, a view of the Capilla can be seen in another point of view or let’s say angle.
Entrance Fee: PHP 200 ($4, €3.4,SGD 5) for foreigners, PHP 100 ($2, €1.7,SGD 2.5) for locals, PHP 50 for student ($1, €0.9,SGD 0.8)
