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.

  • We saw this step and it is a large monument. You can walk from the Basilica of the Santo Niño and get a couple of pictures.

  • Got to learn more about Cebu through the monument .Great stop for the City Tour.It was hot during our visit so just make sure you got suntanlotion and alot of water. 
  • I dropped in after a visit to Yap House when you go to the Santo Niño Church. Huge monuments that have stopped by, well, look at it, just around. A huge monument is depicted Cebu historical figures and events. Ideal for the downtown, near the Church of the Santo Niño, so stop looking at the photo shoot.
