Snapshots of Argao, Cebu

Argao is a municipality located at the southeastern part of the province of Cebu. According to their website,, that "If Cebu is the Queen City of the South, Argao would definitely rank as a Princess Royal." Why? That question still remains a mystery to me. The town is also rich in terms of heritage and natural resources. It is famous for its torta with its unique ingredients like egg, flour, and tuba.

Here are some snapshots. Enjoy!
