A Walk In Parian District with Sissy

Parian is one of the oldest district in Cebu City. It was sunny but that cannot stop me & sissy from exploring this side of the City. After accidentally discovering The Jesuits House, we went to see one of the most visited site, The Heritage of Cebu Park.


The Heritage of Cebu Park is a four sided diorama of Cebu's History. Just around the park are some of the more interesting piece of Cebu City's life, a few steps from it is the oldest fire station, I saw a photograph of it at the Jesuits House Museum.

On the other side of the road is the Yap-San Diego Ancestral House, an old house at the corner Lopez-Jaena and Mabini Street. The old house is full of the owners' family heirlooms; old wooden furniture, images of Sto. Nino and the saints and other ornaments. 








From the Yap-San Diego, we walked the Lopez-Jaena Street, to where Casa Gorordo is located. It is an old house, being taken cared of Aboitiz Foundation. I was able to visit Casa Gorordo two years ago with Mama, sissy was not able to come that time.



We took a few shoots of Casa Gorordo from the Aboitiz Building.

Our next stop is Cafe Elysse, we were supposed to have lunch here, but the restaurant is closed during Mondays. Well, I do have a reason to be back in Parian District.
More Mai Wanders!!!
