“It's too small”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I can say it was ok. Too small though and a bit dirty surroundings. I hope someone would clean the area. The stores inside sells the same items. And most of it are shells from the ocean which we do not support.

“Nice Monument to Lapu Lapu - Small Site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Stopped by the monument to Lapu Lapu on the way into town - and it was a nice monument. The surrounding monument(s) were also nice, but the surrounding buildings were in dire need of repair and upkeep.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

My relatives took us for a night spin. We visited over summer break. I grew up in Cebu but haven't been to the shrine since childhood. The place is replete with nice lights and a lush garden. A reflection of Cebuano roots. It depicts pride and strengthm.

“Nice little attraction near the famous STK area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

glad they did some updates to this attraction. This is the site where Lapu-lapu supposedly killed Magellan during a fierce battle. Another plus to this area? It is right where the famous S-T-K village of eateries is located, so after a short stroll, you can grab an authentic Cebuano/Filipino fresh-seafood fest at one of the STK restaurants (I humbly suggest: Manna, Manna)...STK means shoot-to-kill---seafood as fresh as you can get it!
