Limang siglo na ang nakalilipas nang malugod na tinanggap ng pinuno ng Cebu na si Raha Humabon at ng kaniyang asawang si Doña Juana, si Ferdinand Magellan.Isa siyang Portuguese explorer, subalit ang katapatan ay nasa Hari ng España.

Bilang hudyat na lubusan nang ipinakikilala ng España ang Kristiyanismo sa mga Pilipino, itinayo ni Ferdinand Magellan sa dalampasigan ng Cebu ang isang krus na kahoy.

Hinikayat ni Magellan ang mag-asawa na talikuran ang paniniwalang pagano. Si Raha Humabon ang kauna-unahang Pilipinong nabinyagan bilang Kristiyano.

Sa kasalukuyan, ang krus ay kilala na bilang Magellan’s Cross. Nakalagak ito sa isang kiosk malapit sa Basilica Minore del Santo Niño, sa Magallanes Street, Cebu City.
