Cebu Heritage Monument, Cebu City
(3.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Gaze upon the towering Cebu Heritage Monument, an imposing structure depicting events throughout the history of Cebu. Cement, bronze, steel, and iron form a tableau of sculptures showing important scenes from the city's exciting past. Multi-award-winning sculptor Eduardo Castrillo conceptualized the monument, which was unveiled in December 2000. Located in the same place as the original Plaza Parian, the monument portrays structures including the Basilica del Santo Niño and Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, as well as scenes from the Battle of Mactan between Lapu-Lapu and Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan.

  • One has free access and can run the trappings, but of the stool's does not break one. Unfortunately, there is no closer explanations to the represented characters/scenes, which is why I personally not much more could begin with the fabric

  • This is a colossal monument that encompasses a great deal of the country's history. Great spot to take pictures and learn about the history of the country. Bring a hat if visiting on a sunny day. 
  • In the middle of city, this monument tells you lots of stories about Cebu. And there is quite a few heritage spots around this place, worth to go.
