I found the same road in Barcelona - Paseo de Colon with the statue of world famous explorer Christopher - Mirador de Colón. That was a revelation to me. Now I will not take for granted this historical street in Cebu.

the best way is by cab. From robinson is straight down the road about 2 Km. colon road is quite long. many shops on both side of the road. Beware of pick pocketers. many shopping centres are found along the road.
