“Excellent”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

This was great to look at, we found this after our walk up Colon Street. I was surprised as to how big it was and the statues are good. Right across the road from Yap House.

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

The Cebu Heritage Monument, located on Colon Street, is one of the more recent additions to Cebu's attractions. It's a collection of beautifully crafted statues displaying the history of Cebu. It is easy to reach on foot from Sto Nino or Plaza Independencia and free of charge. Definitely worth strolling by as you're exploring Cebu City.

“Sculpture done by Castrillo.”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Great monument showcasing significant highlights of Cebu's history. The metal sculpture was done by the famous Philippine artist Eduardo Castrillo. Additional bonus if you visit the monument are the three churches in the surrounding area. All churches have great historical and heritage value.

“Cebu Heritage Monument A Wonderful See”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

I just Love the Cebu Heritage Monument.. It is just a wonderful piece of Art.. Standing in the historical Parian street is the Cebu Heritage Monument. It is a collection of sculptures made of concrete, bronze, brass and steel. The monument depicts the historical events related to the history of Cebu and the Philippines in general from the time of Rajah Humabon to the beatification of Cebuano martyr Pedro Calungsod.
