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.

The Cebu Heritage Monument was a recommended must see. Entrance is free to the public but donations were accepted. The monument is a famous sculpture and tourist attraction that portrays notable events and personalities in the history of Cebu. The detail of the sculptures were amazing and the warriors look impressively fierce. It was raining lightly, no crowds, which was nice. We had the monument to ourselves.

The Cebu Heritage Monument is impressive and offers a rich insight into the history and culture of Cebu. The intricate sculptures beautifully depict key events and personalities in Cebu's past. The monument's location in the heart of the city makes it easily accessible for visitors. However, it can get crowded at times, limiting the opportunity for a peaceful and immersive experience. Nonetheless, it remains a must-visit attraction for anyone interested in Cebu's heritage.

This monument depicts important scenes from Philippine history, particularly with reference to the Christianization of the country. It is located in the Parian district of Cebu City (right across the famous Yap-Sandiego ancestral house), specifically in a plaza of an old church that has been demolished and now a fire station stands in it. The monument is quite imposing. However, some pieces of it are beginning to crumble. I wish the local government would do something about it.

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!

The place is tidy and well maintained. As per guide, the sculptures represent the important event or history of Cebu.
It is right in front of yap ancestral house.
Nothing much to say since we just stayed 10 minutes.

Very interesting monument depicting Cebu’s history from Magellan’s arrival, I am sure they had a history before that but no sign of that. That doesn’t make the artwork less interesting, beautiful statues, impressive work. All the information about the monument is no longer there, thus having a guide is helpful. Outside of the monument some touts pushing pearls and other “jewelry”

Free to enter, not crowdered and well worth a look. Don't need a guide if you have read a small amount of the Cebu history. It is within walking distance of most tourist sites in old Cebu.

It is a monument in the middle of the street. Nothing much really other than the different faces of the monuments depicting Lapu Lapu, Spaniards and moden philipines.You can proceed to walk to the Sto Nino church and other nearby attractions after the visit.
