“Tribute to the great Indian warrior Lapu Lapu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Not really too much to say about this other than it is a great place to pass an hour or two. It is a beautiful garden property with statutes of Lapu Lapu, Magellean (sp), and wonderful portraits of an earlier time. Great picture opportunities as it borders a waterway which provides an incredibly cool breeze on an otherwise hot night.

While there in a very safe and well police patrolled area one can purchase trinkets like guitars, tee-shirts, costume jewelry etc.

“For first time visitors”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

This is worth going to for first time visitors as it is one of the landmarks of Cebu but aside from this there is nothing more to see. You can probably stroll along the area but make sure to bring umbrellas since it can be hot at times.

“low price souvenir @ good quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

This is not only a historical place where one of the Filipino's hero stand, it is also a good spot to buy souvenir like native bags and accessories =). It is where a famous local eatery is located,called "SUTUKIL", a great place to grab local seafood dishes without paying too much

“Magellan Shrine - worth a look”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

I only had a day on the island before my connection flight out the next morning so I took a taxi tour of the city. The basilica was very nice, and the cross was interesting. I wouldn't have gone out of my way for it, but there wasn't anything else to visit in the area so it was worth a look.
