Tudela, Cebu


Tudela, Cebu

Tudela municipality belongs to the 5th District of the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 11,266 people.

Tudela is 8 kilometers away from the town of Poro. Along with the town of Poro, Tudela is located on the island of Poro. Roman Catholics are dominant in the town and annually celebrate the fiesta of parish patron Immaculate Conception on December 8th. Local dialect (Cebuano) is entirely spoken all over the town which is exactly similar with the mainland's vernacular dialect.

The town proper is divided into two barangays namely, Northern and Souther Poblacion. With a nearly-perfect symmetrical formation of the streets, you can enjoy roaming around and witness the legacy of the old houses (ca. 1900's) standing side-by-side with the new ones.

Transportation

From Cebu, you can reach Tudela by boat through Poro port. A pump boat ride for 3 1/2 hours (typically a huge one) from Danao City pier. A 1 1/2 hour ride in a fastcraft (called Golden Bridge) from Pier 1, Cebu City. The last option is the snail-ride by ship for 5 hours from Pier 1, Cebu City. Upon reaching Poro port, a dazzling fleet of motorcycles will meet you. A jeepney or two are sometimes available. Fare of 50 pesos (PHP) per person for Tudela (motorcycle or jeepney) is enough (fare rate as of June 2008).
