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.

  • Aside from the statue of Lapu-Lapu, the first Filipino to rebuff colonial rule, there's not much to see here. 
  • Worth stopping by if you are in the area or looking at the Magellan monument. But it's nothing too exciting, not worth a trip across town just to see this venue.
