“Finally!”
Review of Lapu Lapu Statue

Lapu Lapu Statue
Reviewed January 12, 2014

I always dreamed of visiting Lapu Lapu's statue in Mactan Cebu City and have a picture with it... wish got granted when my boyfriend was re-assigned in Cebu City, thus I found a reason to visit Cebu for the first time and see the statue for real! It's nice to go here at night for less crowd and you can also enjoy further the view without worrying for sun exposure. I'm glad the statue is still standing erectly and crack-free after the recent calamity that has befallen in Cebu City. The experience is really a dream come true for me.

So nice to find out more about A national hero who challenged Magellan and the colonizers. Sadly, we were stilled colonized! but resistance was there!

The grounds were clean and well maintained, well worth a visit. If you are staying for a swim then take a coolbag with drinks and a beach umbrella

A Shrine dedicated to Lapu-Lapu, a man known to the country as the hero who defeated Magellan. There's not much to do here, walk around, read some plaques. There's an area for souvenir shops, don't forget to bargain!

It is worth having a look at the local Cebuano who can beat a white man. The statue is situated in a park. Free entrance. Guide not necessary.
