Tells a lot of stories about Cebu

In the middle of city, this monument tells you lots of stories about Cebu. And there is quite a few heritage spots around this place, worth to go.

We are still in Colon street, walking under the rain to reach to Heritage Monument. Wow nice and huge statues, showing Lapu Lapu and Magellan. Many more but because of heavy rains, had to leave fast.

This monument has incredible detail. It's in a weird part of the city, not really next to anything else. It's worth stopping and really looking at it.

If you're happy with sculptures and history, then go for this one. But it would be best if you go there with someone who knows Cebu so he can interpret it for you and make your visit more meaningful. The place itself is located in a rather small road island. Make sure you have umbrella with you if it's too... More

It is a wonderful place to start getting to know Cebu. It is a symbol of historic patriotism, and is near other historic spots like Magellan's Cross, Basilica del Sto Nino and Fort San Pedro.

Walking around the park where the monument stands was totally awesome! My daughter and I had fun going around the monument of which different tropical plants were planted.

This is indeed an impressive monument portraying several centuries of history in one sculpture. Well done. Just a quick visit to see it.

Intelligent and artistic, this well-crafted monument showcases the talent that is truly and proudly Filipino. This monument also serves as an excellent starting point to educate, entertain, amaze foreigners on the rich history of Cebu. Added bonus: a caretaker even walked us around and helped us take pictures.

Very cool- walk around to take it all in. The group of Japanese guys were great - striking up poses for their group picture. Lots of cultural conquest embodied in this huge landmark. Pretty cool spot.
