I could've rate this as just average, mainly because of its location. There's not much to go around here. No food place to go, the air is what you would expect from a city, narrow streets surrounding it. But hey, I'm a fan or both arts and history. So why not rate this as "very good"? If you want to...

We passed along this monument before heading to Sandiego Yap Ancestral house. So we just did a quick photo op because there isn't too much to read or see.

This monument is very interesting and depicts important Filipino history on the island of Cebu but I just found it to be boring. I'm just being honest. There's only so much to look at here. I only suggest spending 15-20 minutes here.

Located in Colon Street, one of the famous landmark and architecture in Cebu. If you are studying arts and architecture I think this is a must see place. Across this is the Yap Ancestral house so it's pretty famous. There are also various small restaurants nearby the prestige landmark.

It's a big and beautiful monument right at the middle of small streets. But I think it should be constructed in a Park where where people can gather for lazy sundays or afternoons. The place is too crowded with jeepneys all around.

Bring along a good camera to capture the beauty of the monument. Another good place to visit is just near the monument- the Yap-San Diego Ancestral House.

Took photographs of this interesting Cebu attraction, just outside of the Yap Sandiego House. From one angle, I noticed a cut portion with the steel frame jutting out. It is still, nevertheless beautiful. I just wish this is fixed soon.

Close to the oldest house in Cebu, this monument is surprisingly large and detailed. Although surrounded by railing, you can still see it all from every angle and there is something to see from each side. Really worth stopping by.
