A long long time ago, there was a skating rink around that fountain. Now, what remains is the fountain. There are occasions like sinulog where this place changes, live bands, a party atmosphere. However, looking at it alone, and i see it every week as i regularly pass by, it has no real tourist oomph to make it an attraction.

Why is this listed as a tourist attraction? It's just a traffic circle with a big fountain in the middle. During Christmas and Sinulog, there are lights on the fountain that might be worth a few pictures. Otherwise, it's not worth stopping here. During your stay in Cebu, you'll probably drive past it a few times.

Cebu is mostly free from beggars but this area is an exception. Still, beggars are not aggressive or menacing. Due to heavy traffic, the area is mostly safe.

There are a few attractions nearby, such as Mango Square and the Crowne Regency tower.

Perfectly situated in the heart of the city. A lot of activities are done here. A lot of concerts, programs, and even rallies. During Christmas season, the place is well decorated which is pleasing to the eye. Just be careful and vigilant with the people around. There are some people that you cannot trust. Be vigilant with your belongings as there are pickpocketers in the area.

Fuente Osmena and Mango Square just nearby are propably most dangerous areas in the Cebu city. Many wendoors,.beggars, thietfs, ladyboys doing monkey businesess. Lot of malls bars, clubs, massage services and fast food restaurants. Keep distance everyone you do not know so well avoid small girls on groups and holding any kind of jewerellyes. Never walk alone at the night time!!!!!
