Poblacion, Naga, Cebu Province (in Pictures)

Naga is a coastal component city in the island province of Cebu.

The city has a land area of 101.97 square kilometers or 39.37 square miles which constitutes 2.06% of Cebu's total area. Its population as determined by the 2020 Census was 133,184. This represented 4.01% of the total population of Cebu province, or 1.65% of the overall population of the Central Visayas region. Based on these figures, the population density is computed at 1,306 inhabitants per square kilometer or 3,383 inhabitants per square mile. Naga has 28 barangays. (PhilAtlas)

This is the 2nd town that is named Naga that I know. The first one being Naga City in Camarines Sur in the Bicol Region. Just like San Fernando, Cebu Province, the town of Naga, Cebu Province is one of those quiet towns that you bypass when going to a major city.

I guess the most important building in this quiet town is the Saint Francis of Assisi Parish Church located along the highway. Pictures taken using my Xiaomi Redmi Note 9.

A marker for the celebration of 500 years of Christianity in the Philippines (2021). A lot of churches in Cebu Province have this marker.
