Tourist Spots in Cebu
Along this street are commercial centers and shops, catering different services.  When I conducted some short research about this place, I knew that this street serves as the home of prostitutes.  According to the residents, there were a lot of old houses along the street, which looks like Calle Crisologo in Vigan, Ilocos Sur few decades ago.  But now, I didn't see anything that deals with the history. You can also visit these sites nearby: Cebu Cathedral Museum, Rajah Humabon and Cebu Cathedral.
