Half-Day Tour in Cebu and Mactan

You will see the most interesting and beautiful places of the islands of Cebu and neighboring Mactan. Hear about the colonization of the Philippines and, in detail, the story of Magellan and the leader Lapu Lapu. In the house-museum I will talk about the traditions and way of life of the Filipinos. We will also admire the panoramas at the observation decks and learn about the production of guitars and dried mangoes.

you will really take a second look if you happen to pass by this sculpture at the middle of a busy street. it has numerous figures that kinda depict cebu's rich history. one will see magellan's cross & galleon, lapu-lapu, sergio osmeña, san pedro calungsod & other historical images that represent cebu's past which made it the strongest city in the visayas. its worse feature is the spot it stands on. you might get hurt from passing motorists if you attempt to scrutinize the monument much closer.

Located at the middle of a very busy street, this attraction is easy to locate. The sculptures depict the history of Cebu . Note that nearby is located another attraction called, 1730 Jesuit House.

The monument is filled with Stone carvings that describe each events that took place from our rich past. You will be welcomed by a caretaker who is full of wits. You will enjoy hearing stories straight from him. My kids appreciated everything we listed to. No fees here needed to walk around. But you can also be generous to Tip the caretaker who is passionate about his story telling and not to discount his sincerity to make you understand how the past happened.

This monument is only really worth seeing if you are already in the area - ie you are visiting either Yap Santiego or Casa Goroado. It really is just a large statue and isn’t worth travelling to for itself alone. At least it’s free!
