The Cuartel, Oslob Cebu
Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepcion Church
I told you it’s perfect for an OOTD shot.
Part of our Summer outing last year, was a short trip at The Cuartel, since the boyf and I were already in the area after our Whale Shark adventure, we opted to visit the heritage park in Oslob. Oslob is a municipality located in the southeastern part of the province of Cebu. It is very famous for their whale-shark watching activities, but the boyf was more ecstatic upon knowing the history and whereabouts of the heritage park. The Cuartel is located front-right of the church of Oslob, just outside the perimeter stone fence and near the sea, stands an unfinished building made of coral blocks resembling a Spanish-era barracks. This was intended to be the Cuartel, barracks for Spanish soldiers or guardia civil (Wikipedia, Oslob Cebu ). Of course, knowing the history made the boyf very interested to explore the area.
We got up at exactly at 6am to drive to the Cuartel, it was gloomy but he was a happy kid touching the coral walls and discovering the remnants of the past. He was even braved enough to climb the walls and played a part as a Spanish soldier. We continued to walked and discovered the area and enjoyed the breeze of the sea as early as 6am. I cannot say much about the ruins, I guess I don’t really appreciate this kind of art, however, the boyf has always been a fan of history, trust me he watches a lot of history channel. But what I did was take endless photos of myself because the place looks so surreal and perfect for a selfie, portrait shots and a bit of travel OOTD. Hahahhaha! Enjoy the photos.
