Colon Street


Colon Street, the oldest street in the Philippines.

Sorry, just few photos, it’s not easy taking photos in the Colon area. This was taken during Christmas.

According to the plaque plastered in one of the building in the historic street:

Colon Street known also as The Parian, is the oldest street in the Philippines. It was built by the Spaniards who arrived at Cebu in 1565 on the fleet composed of the vessels San Pedro, San Pablo and San Juan under the command of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi.

The Colon Street quick history.
