There's not much there other than the statue, a mural and a description of Magellan's ill fated visit to Mactan Island. Not to Magellan - next time stay on Cebu Island where you were welcomed...

The shrine is peaceful, of course, if you come during the weekdays where less tourists are there. But you will feel safe inside the shrine.
