Lapu Lapu Statue, Lapu Lapu

Inspirock Rating:
3/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • I visited because it was mentioned in guidebooks. A gilded statue of Lapu-Lapu, the photogenic. Is lit if you go at night, it was beautiful. Kids come up with money to be careful! Souvenir handicrafts, excellent.

  • The history of the Republic of the Philippines Memorial (?) sounds similar. If you look at the historical facts would lightly. Here's a little shop (?) This is where a lot of arm like a magnet attached to the fridge. Other mojopumdo sell it. ..

  • No need to really spend so much time here. The monument is in the middle of the road. Other than that, there is nothing much to see.
