Cebu at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Island (pop., 1990 : 2,646,000) and (with adjacent islets) province, central Philippines. It is 139 mi (224 km) long and about 20 mi (32 km) wide, with an area of 1,707 sq mi (4,421 sq km). Its chief city is Cebu. A mountain chain extends its entire length. It is separated from Bohol Island by Bohol Strait, and from Negros Island by Tanon Strait. Visited by F. Magellan in 1521, it was occupied by the Spanish in 1565. It is one of the Philippines' most densely populated islands; it produces coal and copper.

City (pop., 1994: 688,000), capital of Cebu province, Philippine Islands. Located on the E coast of Cebu Island, it is the oldest Spanish city in the Philippines. It possesses an excellent harbor, sheltered by Mactan Island. Attracted by Cebu's focal position, F. Magellan landed there in 1521 and converted the ruler to Christianity; in a later war expedition on the ruler's behalf, Magellan was killed on Mactan Island. Occupied by Miguel Ló pez de Legazpi in 1565, it was until 1571 the capital of Spanish possessions in the Philippines. It remained the primary Spanish bastion in the south, and had prominent roles in insurrections against both Spain and the U.S. Having recovered from heavy damage sustained in World War II, Cebu is now a cultural and commercial center.
