Travel Glimpses: Gotiaoco Building in Cebu City


Standing across the Cebu City Hall annex building  is this heritage structure named Gotiaoco Building. Built in 1914, it is one of the first commercial buildings in Cebu and the first to have an elevator. It is named after Pedro Gotiaoco, a successful Filipino-Chinese businessman whose descendants include tycoon John Gokongwei Jr.
