Magellan Shrine, Mactan Island
(2.5/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Erected in honor of a famed explorer, Magellan Shrine remains a charming piece of history surrounded by various other points of interest. The shrine allegedly marks the spot in which Magellan was killed in 1521. Today, the area that provided a setting for a dramatic battle serves as a gathering point for locals and tourists, with a range of souvenir shops and eateries adding appeal to this historical district. Stop by after dark, when artificial lights illuminate the shrine for a magical look.
