A nice small park. Good for a stop and a break during Cebu city tour. Better with a guide who will tell you the story of the place. Walk down to the sea.

Had a short tour at our forgotten hero.our guide told us that we should try the city's "Sutukil" right across Lapu-lapu monument.and expectations were really much met with all the variety of seafoods, I just could'nt wait to visit back the place

We took a tour of Cebu City which stopped off here enroute. Not nearly as interesting as the old Spanish fort.

This statue was built in a small park to commemorate the local native warrior Lapu Lapu, who led the people and defeated the Spanish in 1521. It is a simple place and nothing spectacular. It is rather hot here, so be prepared with an umbrella.

Here you will see the statue of Lapu Lapu, that commemorates the battle of the native islanders against the Spanish travelers lead by Magellan.

Came here with friends and place is not crowded. Good place to hangout and shop for some souvenirs. Not much to see but nice peaceful place.

If you have seen many statues, and unless you know the story behind this one, then it's not very interesting. I won't tell you about him, that is for another site But he won a battle for people in 1521. It's in a nice setting...More

The statue was worth seeing, it is a stunning replica of the warrior Lapu Lapu. I don't know what Magellan was thinking at the time, but personally, I would not have messed with this guy or his fellow tribesmen!

This is a wonderful place to come and spend an hour or less because there really isn't too much to see or do. If you are in Mactan it's fun but I wouldn't really make a trip here just to see it. Xx
