“Monuments in One”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

It's been some time since I went to this place and paid attention to it but if I remember it correctly it is a 350 degree monument depicting different historical events. It's nothing spectacular. Worth a visit due to its location being near Casa Gorordo and the Yap San Diego House. Why not have another picture opportunity while at it.

“An artistic masterpiece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

A must see. There is so much complexity to the sculpture. So many stories in one monument. Be certain to have at least one hour to take it all in.

“Good piece of art at the end of colon street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

It's a few steps away from the end of the older street Colon Street. It occupies a small space filled with so much art and shows so much Filipino talent.

“Huge landmark of Old Cebu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The Cebu Heritage Monument was created by National Artist Edgardo Castrillo. It has elements depicting the history of Cebu which are great for photoshoots. It's right in front of the must-see Yap-Sandiego House.

It's worth the visit.

“Old Spanish fort”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Located in the old part of the city near the old piers and the Magellan's Cross and the Sto. Nino Shrine. A good quiet spot for some pictures
