Santo Tomas de Villanueva Parish Church, Danao City, Cebu Province (in Pictures)

I passed by the Santo Tomas de Villanueva Parish Church in Danao City on my way back to Cebu City. It’s a nice church and ideal for wedding. Let the pictures I took do the talking.

Poblacion, Carmen, Cebu Province (in Pictures)

Carmen is a coastal municipality in the island province of Cebu.

The municipality has a land area of 84.78 square kilometers or 32.73 square miles which constitutes 1.71% of Cebu's total area. Its population as determined by the 2020 Census was 57,897. This represented 1.74% of the total population of Cebu province, or 0.72% of the overall population of the Central Visayas region. Based on these figures, the population density is computed at 683 inhabitants per square kilometer or 1,769 inhabitants per square mile. Carmen has 21 barangays. (PhilAtlas)

The town of Carmen is another small town that has a modern Catholic church at the Poblacion area and a neo-classical municipal hall. There’s a Rizal Monument in front of the municipal hall but I can’t find the public market. Like Catmon, the town of Carmen is one of those towns located along the main highway (or traverse by the National Road).

Poblacion, Catmon, Cebu Province (in Pictures)

Catmon is a coastal municipality in the island province of Cebu.

The municipality has a land area of 109.64 square kilometers or 42.33 square miles which constitutes 2.22% of Cebu's total area. Its population as determined by the 2020 Census was 33,745. This represented 1.01% of the total population of Cebu province, or 0.42% of the overall population of the Central Visayas region. Based on these figures, the population density is computed at 308 inhabitants per square kilometer or 797 inhabitants per square mile. Catmon has 20 barangays.

What I like about my visit to the Poblacion area of Catmon, Cebu Province is their church, dedicated to San Guillermo. Like the Sogod Church, the San Guillermo Parish Church is located on a hill. It has a huge church ground which makes it “instagrammable”. It’s one of the most beautiful I’ve seen.

There’s also a Rizal Monument and a public park near the Catmon Municipal Hall.

The San Guillermo Church in Catmon, Cabu Province is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen. Unfortunately, the church is close during my visit so I wasn’t able to snap the interior.

Sogod, Cebu Province (in Pictures)

Sogod is a coastal municipality in the island province of Cebu.

The municipality has a land area of 119.23 square kilometers or 46.03 square miles which constitutes 2.41% of Cebu's total area. Its population as determined by the 2020 Census was 39,447. This represented 1.19% of the total population of Cebu province, or 0.49% of the overall population of the Central Visayas region. Based on these figures, the population density is computed at 331 inhabitants per square kilometer or 857 inhabitants per square mile. Sogod has 18 barangays. (PhilAtlas)

From Bogo City, I took a bus en route to Cebu City but I took off at the town of Sogod. I initially planned to go to Borbon but It’s on a different route. Sogod is one of those small towns but is charming. Both the municipal hall and the church is located on a hill. I have to climb a flight of stairs to reach the church dedicated to the Immaculate Concepcion.

The market is very small though. I thought it’s just a talipapa. There’s also a Rizal Monument in front of the municipal hall. After Sogod, I also visited the towns of Catmon, Carmen, Danao City, and Liloan before resting at Cebu City for my 3rd day of this tour.

From Daanbantayan, I went back to Cebu City but stopping over to the towns and cities along the main highway. I had a stopover at Bogo City, Cebu Province. My first stop was the Archdiocesan Shrine of St. Vincent Ferrer. It was being painted when I visited last February 22, 2022 so I don’t know what the final look is.

Then I walk to the city’s Poblacion and I appreciate the old houses I’ve seen. There’s also one that is repurpose to be a restaurant adjacent to the city park. From the town center I rode a tricycle to the Central Bus Terminal which is far from the city center.

Here are some of the pictures I took of Bogo City in Cebu Province.
