Went here and it is just a monument with touts trying to take your photo and sell you a toy tarsier. No information on what it is about.

Nothing special. This is not really a tourist stop. Its just a monument stuff, nothing to do there. Our driver pointed it out to us and I said okay skip it, since what you see is just what you get.

Personally I wouldn't go out of your way to see this. Literally just a monument sorrounded by construction work.

The second stop on our Bohol Countryside tour was the Blood Compact Site or Sandugo. It is a tribal ritual in the Philippines intended to seal a friendship or treaty by cutting their wrists and pour their blood into a cup filled with liquid like wine and drink the mixture. Miguel Lopez de Legazpi the Spanish explorer arrived in Bohol in March 16, 1565 and had formed a friendship with the Bohol's Chieftain Datu Sikatuna. This Sikatuna-Legazpi blood compact is considered as the first friendship treaty between Philippines and Spain. This is being taught in Philippines primary school so my son was excited to see the shrine in person.
