“I don't get it”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

It was near to our hotel so that was the saving grace. Really didn't see the attraction of this place. Nothing really to see

“A brief interlude in a Cebu city tour.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

It is of limited historical and religious interest and will occupy about 5 minutes of your time with another 15 minutes trying to escape the attention of overpriced souvenir vendors looking for gullible foreigners.

“historical shrine”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The structure is found inside the Mactan Shrine, the same place where the Lapu-Lapu shrine is situated. a well-kept tower with historical significance in the country, built in honor of Ferdinand Magellan. no entrance fee is required. I guess visitors should just be disciplined enough to keep the surroundings clean by not throwing their garbage around.

“Too many hawkers harassing the tourists”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

From the moment we stepped out of the taxi we were inundated by people trying to sell us their touristy garbage, begging for money or forcing candles upon us with tales of a million well wishes to our families etc. It completely ruined the experience and I wouldnt bother trying that again
