Super impressive monument to see, located near city center and easy to get to.

Heritage Monument depicts the history of Philippines making it a must-see attraction in Cebu City.

Make sure you see both sides of the monument and read some of the signs.

The Cebu Heritage Monument was a recommended must see. Entrance is free to the public but donations were accepted. The monument is a famous sculpture and tourist attraction that portrays notable events and personalities in the history of Cebu. The detail of the sculptures were amazing and the warriors look impressively fierce. It was raining lightly, no crowds, which was nice. We had the monument to ourselves.

Someone recommended seeing this Monument and Yap house a stones throw away. Great place to start sightseeing of area.

Didn’t do any research previously, but was fascinated by the size and the characters depicted. They look like bad ass Warriors and I was the only one there . Only about 5 minutes to look at and then make your way to Yap house!

The Cebu Heritage Monument is impressive and offers a rich insight into the history and culture of Cebu. The intricate sculptures beautifully depict key events and personalities in Cebu's past. The monument's location in the heart of the city makes it easily accessible for visitors. However, it can get crowded at times, limiting the opportunity for a peaceful and immersive experience. Nonetheless, it remains a must-visit attraction for anyone interested in Cebu's heritage.

The Cebu Heritage Monument is a stunning sculpture and a must-see attraction in Cebu City. The monument depicts important historical events and figures in the city's history, from the arrival of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan to the Battle of Mactan. The intricate details of the sculpture and the use of lighting make it a beautiful sight to behold at night. The monument also features a fountain and a small park, providing a relaxing and picturesque spot for visitors. The monument's location in the city center makes it easily accessible and a perfect addition to any itinerary exploring the city's rich history and culture.

This monument depicts important scenes from Philippine history, particularly with reference to the Christianization of the country. It is located in the Parian district of Cebu City (right across the famous Yap-Sandiego ancestral house), specifically in a plaza of an old church that has been demolished and now a fire station stands in it. The monument is quite imposing. However, some pieces of it are beginning to crumble. I wish the local government would do something about it.

This monument tells us very detailed information about Cebu history and Magellan's factor. A great architecture and amazing point, it deserves taking some pic tures with it.

Free to enter, not crowdered and well worth a look. Don't need a guide if you have read a small amount of the Cebu history. It is within walking distance of most tourist sites in old Cebu.

Very interesting monument depicting Cebu’s history from Magellan’s arrival, I am sure they had a history before that but no sign of that. That doesn’t make the artwork less interesting, beautiful statues, impressive work. All the information about the monument is no longer there, thus having a guide is helpful. Outside of the monument some touts pushing pearls and other “jewelry”
