Colon street is at the heart of Cebu City; it is the oldest and shortest national road in the country.

Colon street is the major thoroughfare in Cebu City. If you ever get lost, go to Colon street and there you will know where to go. This short, cramped and crowded stretch of road is overflowing with passenger jeepneys, shops, and sidewalk vendors that sometimes it can get a little claustrophobic.

It’s hard to imagine that at some time in the past, Colon street used to be really peaceful and empty. Only a few horse carriages would pass by, and nobody would play their budots remix on the sidewalk.

Colon street is named after Cristóbal Colón, the Spanish name for explorer Christopher Columbus who sailed for the king and queen of Spain in the 16th century. Colon street traces its origins to the town plan created by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, the Spanish conquistador who arrived in the Philippines to establish a colony in 1565.
