It's located in the front of the Fort San Pedro. Just a footwork away from Maggelans Cross and the big big public market. Near the Colon Street... So take good shoes... 😂

This place is right adjacent to the Yap-San Diego Ancestral Home. The whole monument can basically explain to you the history of cebu. It was well made, I have nothing but high praises to the artist of this magnificent structure.

actually, you can go there anytime, because it's in the center of the park, and you can see it directly, as soon as you get there
