Cebu is a thrilling adventure playground and a hotbed for attractions. Its diversity makes it more compelling to discover and explore more of its places. It is home to a museum of antique sculptures, paintings, collection of old valuables, and Irish and Peruvian work of art from the 17th century. Capilla Santa Ana in Barangay Ibo, City of Toledo is just a 5-minute cab ride from Metro store (Toledo Proper). Before reaching the amazing maze you can have a historical tour at the museum. There are many relics of saints from local and international destinations.
Owned by the Overs family, the chapel was built as home for the relics and religious artifacts that they have accumulated over time.
There is an entrance fee for the museum, which is P100 for local visitors and P200 for foreign ones. However, students can avail a discount of 50%.
Capilla Santa Ana’s Labyrinth follows a European design – the only one in Cebu so far. The guides also say that it is a meditative labyrinth because one can finish a rosary by going around it.
The maze is a solemn place as it is very quiet. It is the perfect place for meditating, praying and reflecting. The maze is not that big, roughly 25 meters in diameter, but its unique design and appeal adds to the overall charm of the place.
A labyrinth as defined is a puzzling pathway, but this kind of maze at the southern province of Cebu gives you a perfect place and time to find inner peace and devotion. It is inspiring visiting a place of historical essence plus the unique masterpiece, the maze.
