Awesome statue, clean, and organized garden. Nothing much to see on this site. Souvenirs in and outside on the site are available. Highly recommended.

Small place to visit. Nothing much to see except Lapu-Lapu's statue is very nice. His butt is well structured. Good to shop inside. Nice people and decent shopping prices.

Not bad to have a short visit, as it is nearby other tourist attractions especially if it is your first time to Cebu. It is also good to learn the colony past of the country, which always remind me how the East and the West encountered each other centuries ago.

A nice place for someone interested in history and culture. The shrine itself is quite beautiful, though there's not that much to see. If you have time, enjoying the foliage and soaking in the atmosphere is nice. Freelance tour guides rush to your side to hold umbrellas over your head and guide you over to the local businesses.

I loved the Flowers the most, to me it was more like a park, I feel this is a very nice place to take a Date. When we first got there a man wanted to be our guide would not take no for an answer. Right next to this place are a number of small shops, you can also get... More

nothing much to see here, but a good sculpture nonetheless, capturing the passion, aggression, and pride of the legendary hero.

It was my 3rd times visits at Lapu Lapu Statue in Cebu after the strong earthquake and typhoon Yolanda. The garden still awesome and maintained well. The weather was not pretty good. Month of March to May is the best weather. You may buy some souvenirs inside or outside the Lapu-Lapu Statue. Negotiate the price.
