Also known as Lapu-Lapu Shrine, is where the battle for supremacy and freedom took place between Ferdinand Magellan and Lapu-Lapu.

Magellan and several other men were killed. This was later recognized as the historic Battle of Mactan.

Magellan’s Monument
A monument dedicated to the memory of the great explorer Ferdinand Magellan who was killed in a tussle with Lapu-Lapu.

Magellan’s Marker

Colon Street
Colon Street is a crowded street in downtown Cebu City that is often called the oldest and the shortest national road in the Philippines. It is named after Christopher Columbus. It traces its origins to the town plan by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, the Spanish conquistador who arrived in the Philippines to establish a colony in 1565.

Heritage of Cebu Monument
A tableau of sculptures made of concrete, bronze, brass and steel showing scenes about events and structures related to the history of Cebu. Local artist Eduardo Castillo built the sculptures of the Cebu Heritage Monument.

The persons depicted in the monument include the late president Sergio Osmena Sr., and Blessed Pedro Calungsod.

Yap - San Diego Ancestral House
