Cebu City is also known as the City of Cebu.

It is the capital and regional center of Central Visayas, and the seat of government for the province of Cebu. However, it is independent. It and its surrounding area have a significant influence on commerce, trade and industry in the region. They also have an impact on education, culture, tourism, healthcare, and other aspects of the economy. It is the Philippines’ main shipping port, and home to approximately 80% of its domestic shipping companies.

Cebu is bordered with Balamban City and Danao City. Toledo City. Lapu-Lapu City. Mandaue City. Liloan City. Consolacion.

The current political boundaries of the city were formed by the incorporation of former municipalities Cebu, San Nicolas and El Pardo during the Commonwealth period. [8]

The Precolonial period saw Cebu occupied by the Rajahnate, which was also known to the Ming Dynasty as the nation Sokbu (Shu Wu). [9] Its capital was Singhapala (cingkppuur), which is Tamil-Sanskrit and means \"Lion City\". These rootwords are the same as the modern city-state Singapore.

Cebu is the oldest city in the country. It was also the first Spanish settlement[10] as well as the first capital of the Philippines. Through a Real provision [es] from Philip II of Spain on April 27, 1594 it became a city. It was the first Philippine city to be declared a city and is now the second-oldest royal Spanish city in the nation. It was granted a new charter by the National Assembly of the Philippines with an expanded territory [11] 343 Years later. [8]
