Colorful Place in The North | Medellin, Cebu

Last Sunday, amid our busy days, Ace and I got the chance to visit a colorful town in the Northern part of Cebu to attend my cousin’s christening. The place I’m talking about is Medellin, Cebu. It is 113 kilometers (70 mi) away from Cebu City.

You will know that you reached the town because of the colorful bridges and road signs. You will be welcomed by the shades of purple, green, orange and blue. Everything is just full of colors.

Here, take a look at their municipal hall.

Can you see me? LOL

I was very amazed because all government infrastructures are painted alike. I find it very unique and brilliant.

Unfortunately, I was not able to take a lot of pictures because Ace and I were touring the place by a motorbike. The weather was too hot to stop and take a shot. But, I tell you, the town is worth a visit.

After the christening in church, we stopped by this area.

Bridge of love.

They call this ‘the Bridges of Love’. You can easily see this because it’s by the dockside.


Despite the scorching heat of the sun, I couldn’t help but take a picture of myself here. Sadly, Ace was worried he might get burnt so here, let me just take a selfie. 😛


Across this colorful bridge is a cottage full of colors, too.


Ahh.. I would love to stay longer to explore the place and it’s hidden attractions but time didn’t permit. Anyway, we plan to visit it again after our wedding. And on that time, we will go to the fantastic island which everybody on the internet is talking about. Here, take a look.

I’ve been wanting to go there and hopefully it would be realized in the following months. 🙂

So, what do you think of this place?






Hi, there!.. :) I'm Emz, a frustrated writer/blogger from a far-flung place of Cebu, Philippines. I love reading and writing, and if there's two things I can't live without, it would be my pen and my notebook. I have the love for food and travel. I am optimistic and I am a dreamer. Thus, Thought Diary is more like me. Here are tidbits of life, inspiration, places, people and myself. Welcome to my corner! Thank you for dropping by. :)

  1. Florida on steroids? My oldest brother lives in Florida. Everything is painted in pastels. A real Miami vice kind of thing. I guess I am too accustomed to the steel and limestone architecture of really big buildings in Chicago!
