Capitol Building

“The Authority of the Government Emanates from the People”

Enthroned in our Constitution, this hallowed axiom of democracy and republicanism is proclaimed prominently on the concave pediment of the Cebu Provincial Capitol Building which was erected during the American occupation of the Philippines. It has been the seat of the government of the Province of Cebu since it was built in 1937 during the incumbency of Governor Sotero Cabahug.

It was designed by the late famous Filipino architect Juan Marcos Arellano whose works include such iconic buildings as Manila’s Metropolitan Theatre, the National Museum of the Philippines and the Manila Central Post Office Building.
