Santo Nino is one of Cebu older churches. The church area has a number of touts and people selling candles, though no one is overly "pushy".

Magnificent .. so beautiful old Cathedral built in 1565. It's fascinating to see collections of Sto Niño customs,antique objects are on display like ceremonial capes and jewelries, furnitures, priests vestments. This Church museum showcases the history of Christianity in Cebu.

The place is just on the church ground near where candles be lighted. Many devotees go there and see how Sto. Niño structure evolves in time.

This is located in a building within the Basilica compound but away from the general crowd. It is quite small and filled up with several images of the Baby Jesus and memorabilia from the Spanish era.
