Standing tall and imposing, this magnificent manmade structure is a testament to the island's historic past. Heritage can be an understatement.

This is a must see because it depicts a lot of Cebu's history. You can feel the Cebuano pride as walk around the monument. Get a tour guide for this.

The Heritage of Cebu Monument is situated near Yap Sandiego Ancestral House and the Parian Police station. It depicts the history of Philippines. It is a small monument, but well preserved. And it is free. You can spend about ten minutes or so here, taking a lot of pictures as well.

Yes it is a nice monument but I don't think it is a just see one. But if you are there anyway maybe for the ancestral house, why not stopping by this monument as well?

Located in the middle of Parian Police Station and Yap Sandiego Ancestral House, the monument is most of the time disregarded by many. For those who would like to have a glimpse of glorious history of Cebu, one should take few minutes to visit the monument and examine each tableau. It is a public art so its free!

all historical events in Cebu in one Monument. It's a to-go-list when you're visiting Cebu City. No entrance fee charge, easy access. The only negative thing to say is that the place around the monument has alot of trashes. But overall its an amazing Monument.

This is one of the most intricate and impressive monuments I have ever seen. You cannot spend long here but a good 10 minutes really appreciating it would do.

really cool, better than those monuments here in Shanghai. It contains all the history of the Philippines in one. Maybe our history is to long to be carved into one...just kidding... I paid it a visit and some pictures taken.
