Similar to other towns in the island, the name of the town of Oslob was supposedly due to miscommunication between the Spaniards and the locals. The town is also known for having one of the best shorelines in the southern Cebu. Aside from the natural attractions, Oslob can also be a good destination for history and culture lovers.
The term Cuartel is Spanish for “barracks,” which means it as built to serve as the barracks of the Spanish army. A local historian said it was built through the effort of El Gran Maestro Don Marcus Sabandal. But, it was not completed following the arrival of the Americans in 1899. It was supposed to be the first line of defense of the naval forces of Spain in the town. The town was among the places in Cebu that had to deal with regular attacks from Moro invaders.
To get to the Cuartel in Oslob, you should get on a bus headed for the town at the Cebu South Bus Terminal. Just tell the driver you want to get of the Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepcion Church in Oslob. The Cuartel is located a few steps away from the church.
