  • Step in the tour at Chocolate Hills. Monument in memory of the first Pact of friendship, celebrated by drinking their blood, between Filipinos and Spaniards. Could be very interesting but the place is very nice and there are plaques with historical information. Beautiful sea views from the lobby and the hotel pool.

  • Memorial evoking a historical fact of the struggles of our natural with the Spaniards. He recalls a Treaty of peace and Alliance signed in 1565 between the two parties in which players from both parties poured blood in a Cup, mixed in and after each head drank, establishing a blood pact. The event became known as Sandugo. Is a bronze memorial, with life-sized human figures 5. Tourist attraction

  • The first stop as part of a Bohol Tour. It wasn't amazing but was interesting. The statues were metal and it was fairly intricate. There isn't anything else here and you could easily miss it if you didn't know where it was. When we were there, there was a fence around the monument so there wasn't much of a view. A place to get some quick snaps before heading to the next stop.
  • small place nothibg to see except a statue but good to visit part of the experience very near to alona beach with motorcycle
  • Across the Bool Elementary School and beside Ocean Suites, this is the real shrine of the Blood Compact "thing." Bronze life-size monuments are against the oceanic view. But there is no description or any information about the event. No entrance fee.
  • Blood compact site between Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Rajah Sikatuna of Bohol.
  • Very interesting site. Even if it is not the original location.
