In the Philippines, a cross measuring 100 metres is being built underwater!

In the waters surrounding the Philippine island of Olango, at the level of the town of Lapu-Lapu, a 100-metre underwater cross will soon be built. Construction of the structure began in mid-October and, once completed, the whole thing is expected to become the latest underwater attraction and be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan reported that the entire cross is to be constructed from fragments of broken coral collected by divers, with the project taking about two months to complete. Even assuming a slight delay, the whole thing should be ready before the upcoming Christmas and will perfectly fit in with the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of Christianity, which falls in 2021.

This will be another diving attraction in our city, and we’ll be entering it into the Guinness Book of Records as the largest underwater cross in the world! – Mayor Junard Chan told the media

It all started with an initiative from the local diving community, who came to the mayor with the firm resolve that it was time for the town to get a new underwater attraction that would make the town famous in the diving world.

Interestingly, there is no shortage of interesting underwater locations, but as they say, if you’ve had enough, you’ve had enough. The sunken cross will become the 26th place on the diving map of the area. However, it is hardly surprising that local divers are involved, as underwater tourism is the main source of income for many people in this region.
