  • The spot has become a tour as of the end of Magellan. Fought Magellan and Lapu-Lapu-King's spot in the background. Is the tipping system is safe toilets. Kogurai's shops hand-crafted accessories such as this. No price notation is cumbersome, with multiple or cross price negotiable. Admission is free. Seems to have a seafood restaurant on the far left of the entrance is the tourist price so popular.

  • Stayed at the Shangri La, so I walked. Step outside the hotel grounds and the otherworldly landscape timid I walked quite nervously, but my husband who did not care, so I was walking and. Because the way things are bad light went out is better. Was followed by Japan's sense that the pretty health state is evil-looking House, but still everyone children seemed amusing, but was playing well. Park while a tourist destination because of course very clean and maintained. I guess if not had security guards, so poorly dressed people. Visiting souvenir shops went from briefly looking at the statue of Lapu-Lapu city, and take pictures. Looked like the hand-made sandals and back, but was made very well. There were of people in terrible tide if I went to the sea and fishing. I think as long as time is wow location is maintained and where no gap, no risk. On the way back, I also used, could also afford the opportunity to take photos of the banana stand.

  • It is an important place here trying to land for Christian missionary work Magellan in 1521 and died in hand-to-hand combat and Lapu-Lapu city King. Small parks and tropical atmosphere. Are lined with shops selling local crafts in the Park. Often seen only in crafts sales, so guests can enjoy if you like. In this park with a statue of the hero of Mactan, Lapu-Lapu city King and mactemps line was built to honor it. Magellan in human history for the first time crossed the Pacific to use westbound route from Spain, first arrived on the island of Cebu. King Humabon of the island of Cebu and Magellan is well suited and hit it off. As a result, King Humabon is person in the Philippines for the first time received a Christian baptism. (See Church of centoninho and the Magellan cross) of Magellan after after advance missionary work in Cebu is proselytizing in Mactan Island to think I wouldn't. I bought a backlash from dangling power warships of Magellan in this Misty convert in to reverse and take brave strong, forceful Mactan Island and eventually get into a State of war. King of Mactan Island Lapu-Lapu city with 1500 soldiers waited for Magellan in this beach. Magellan's miscalculation was a huge coral reefs. It is far from Mactan Island is surrounded by coral reef several hundred meters around touching all of Magellan's ships failed to arrive even from cannon. The ship Magellan unavoidably, crashed into hand to hand combat in the coral unfamiliar footing.
