Spent the day with local family members touring various spots around lapu lapu and Cebu. We visited the Lapu Lapu shrine. Cool to see and to hear the history from the locals. Souvenir shops there were great and cheap! Better deals than most of the other places we visited on the island that day! Highly recommend making this a stop... More

We took a cab from our resort and it was fairly easy to get to the park where the statue is there. It shows a little bit of history and when there is low tide you can actually walk on out and see the crabs walking around and see how the people of the area catch them. The park itself... More

This one is the pride of the Filipino before. Fought against the Spaniards and defeated Magellan. I still admire this guy who really fought and willing to die for his land.

I still remember my visit here when I was younger and recently, I came back to see the shrine once more. Well, this is just a small area in honor of our very first hero Lapu Lapu. The surroundings were made clean and maintained very well. Visitors are coming in and out. One thing you can really notice here is... More

Arrived in a rainy day. Great statue for the leader Lapu Lapu with his swords. The battle field is where Magellan was killed with many boats. Small and beautiful garden with many gifts shops.

The statue and grounds themselves are not all that spectacular. But the plaque showing the short history behind the iconic character it recalls is great. Hope they could somehow do some more here but I remember they are building more on the site.

The whole thing is fake and vendors try to rip you off on the side. They drop busloads of tourists here but really there is nothing to see.

I suggest getting the service of the tour guide once you step inside the shrine. They'll approach you with an umbrella, which was really helpful in beating the heat, and will tell you more about the place.
