Blood Compact Monument commemorates the first international treaty of friendship between Filipinos and Spaniards. The blood compact, or sandugo, took place as part of a tribal tradition in 1565 to seal the friendship between the two nations. The statues depict celebrated Basque-Spanish navigator Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, who arrived in Cebu just before the treaty, and Rajah Sikatuna, lord of Bohol, as well as several witnesses present on that momentous day. In addition to historical significance, the monument offers views of the Bohol Sea.

We stopped here because you go by it on the way to the chocolate hills, It's cool to read the write up, but this is a 10 minute stop at most.

I like the monument, its simple yet impossing. Its expensive (well its made of bronze) yet its message is very down to earth. Its a simple reminder of such historic event. The only problem is that this is not the actual site...
Wasn't bad or good. A tourist thing to tick off the list in my opinion.
A historical site that recognizes rich multi cultural history of the Philippines. Its just sad that it is sandwiched by establishments making the statue have no appeal and soon be forgotten.
They should put more attention to this site not pollute it with buildings the place should be widen to make it more historical not just a place with statues.
Its a monument which explains a piece of cebu's history. The place is just along the road
