Lapu Lapu Statue, Lapu Lapu

(3/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • 進去前就一堆車夫或是閒人在那邊想要帶你進去遊覽賺些小費, 開的價都很誇張的要你殺價,我們不喜歡殺價所以要進去直接轉去右邊的紀念品攤, 其中一個老婆婆的攤她話不多但是都超級便宜不需要殺價,老婆婆資訊在相片上,倒數第四攤。推薦貝殼  more »
