Talisay City, Cebu Province (in Pictures)

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

The city has a land area of 39.87 square kilometers or 15.39 square miles which constitutes 0.81% of Cebu's total area. Its population as determined by the 2020 Census was 263,048. This represented 7.91% of the total population of Cebu province, or 3.25% of the overall population of the Central Visayas region. Based on these figures, the population density is computed at 6,598 inhabitants per square kilometer or 17,092 inhabitants per square mile. Talisay has 22 barangays. (PhilAtlas)

From Naga, Cebu Province I rode a bus going to Cebu City but I dropped off at Tabunok, Talisay City. From there, I rode a tricycle going to the Poblacion area where the church and munisipyo (municipal hall) is located.

The Talisay City Church is also known as Sta Teresa de Avila Church. Similar to other churches in Cebu Province, the Sta Teresa de Avila Church is all painted in white. It also has two belfries so it’s really symmetrical. Right across the street from the church you’ll find the Talisay City Hall where a monument both to Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio can be found.

From Talisay City, I rode a mini-bus back to Cebu City.

The façade of Sta Teresa de Avila Church in Talisay City is painted all-white and has two belfries. It also has classical theme by the use of columns.
