Lapu Lapu Statue, Lapu Lapu
(3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to the first Philippine hero who resisted the Spanish colonization, Lapu Lapu Statue commemorates the nation's fight for independence. Ironically overlooking Magellan's monument, the 20 m (65.5 ft) high bronze statue stands on a white brick pillar and portrays the Visayan chieftain in traditional garb, holding a machete and shield. Explore the surrounding exotic forest and its shrines, breathe in the salty ocean air, and cap off your visit with a stop at the surrounding shops to buy souvenirs. Days can get very hot here, so wear sunscreen and carry extra water with you. Take a look at our Lapu Lapu vacation builder to schedule your visit to Lapu Lapu Statue and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • If you are ever in Mactan, here you can make a short detour, but extra of Cebu or else where to go I would not rather. At least it's free no occurs.

  • Cebu had an real history you should discover it. Santo Niño church and LapuLapu monument are part off that .. just visit booth.. 
  • In the absence of more worthy of a visit. It is a pity that both monuments quite dilapidated and has long required restoration. Park around them a little and visit quite enough and 15 minutes. Around weight not pretentious restaurants, but they are very big fans of exotic!
