Fuente de Osmeña or Fuente Osmeña is one of the oldest landmarks in Cebu. The fountain, which was built in 1912 to commemorate Cebu City’s first waterworks system as well as honor Cebu’s Grand Old Man – the fourth Philippine President – Sergio Osmeña, stands right in the heart of midtown Cebu. The circle lies in the very intersection of Mango Avenue, Osmeña Boulevard, and B. Rodriguez Street.
The park surrounding the fountain is very popular among locals. For this reason, hundreds of establishments can be found immediately around the rotunda. The circle is often the venue of cultural presentations, demonstrations and concerts.
