Oslob Heritage Park

It took me three attempts to finally set foot in Siquijor. The first time I booked for Siquijor, I had to cancel the trip because the exam on my masters was scheduled at the same time. Last year, I booked with my college friends, but had to cancel due to the typhoon. I've been seeing the beauty of Siquijor a lot in the blogs that I thought I had to go and visit. You have to judge the tone of my writing on whether I am satisfied on the visit or not. But that would come later, alright? :P Aside from Siquijor, we did swimming with the whale shark in Oslob, Cebu and swimming with the pawikan in Apo Island. Yes, swimming, lol. :P

Let's start, shall we? :P We left after work on a Thursday and waited for our late flight at the airport. We were a bit hesitant to go directly to Oslob, so we decided to eat our late dinner at Larsian and find a place to stay for the night. We walked around Larsian and it was already almost midnight when we found Sampaguita Suites. We decided to rest for the night, and find the best lechon the following day. Of course, we could not leave Cebu without feasting on a lechon. We googled for the nearest and best lechon in the area, and found Zubuchon at One Mango Square. Yes, it was worth it!

We took the jeep to the Elizabeth Mall, and then went to the South Bus Terminal. We took the bus going to Oslob and paid P155 for a 3.5-hour travel. When we reached Oslob, we checked in at BCD Place, and decided to explore Oslob. We took the bus again to visit the Heritage Park. We found the Immaculate Conception Church, Cuartel, Baluarte and the Baywalk. It took us only 30 minutes to visit these spots.

The first spot that one will see at the Heritage Park is the Immaculate Conception Church. This church finished the construction after 18 years after they started it! That was really a long time!

Adjacent to the church is the Cuartel, the unfinished barracks for the Spanish armies. This looks good in photo. Look at me in the second photo! :P
Cuartel
hey, smile!
There is a park reminiscent of the Baywalk in Puerto Princesa. Of course, Palawan's Baywalk looks a lot better, but this exudes the same vibe.

friends!
There is a Baluarte, or the watch tower in Oslob. This was part of their defense system in the past.
Baluarte
When we left the Heritage Park, we found a number of stalls by the road that served grilled street food. We decided to eat our dinner there, and bought ice cream in the nearby store. Yes, ice cream! :P That made my day!!! :P

We went to Oslob for the butanding adventure, but the Heritage Park is not bad. If you have time to spare, it is always nice to visit historic sites such as this one.
