Cebu's Heritage in one place

The rich history of the city in one go, don't spend too much time and for sure will not interest some tourist. But its worth a shot!

At the start of Colon street. Interesting monument and worth seeing considering it's free. Benches to sit. Will only take you five minutes but close to several museums.

Nestled in the middle of a bustling city surrounded by heritage houses and a few blocks from Collon street, this monument can be found while you course through the nearby ancestral houses in the area.

We parked close by and walked closer to take pictures. Very Beautiful Monument. Is a reflection of the modern and historical influences coming together to create the modern Cebu.

The first time I saw this monument I had to tell the driver to stop. It was just so majestic. The details and the craftsmanship are very awe-inspiring. I was undergoing "something" then, but somehow, just by staring at this monument, my troubles seemingly flew away.

You can't imagine the feeling seeing this creation in front of you. Like all of a sudden, it was right there beneath the small houses and some trees. What's interesting was that locals don't know what it's called. Hello people! We should be tourist guides of our own country.

Situated in the Parian area just off Colon Street is this massive imposing monument. Parts looking in some need of repair and maintenance. The size of this monument is surprising as you look around and see the run down area. One wonders why here? At one time this was possibly the centre of the city. Vibrant and wealthy? But the...

This place provides insight into Cebu City's rich culture and significant historical events as captured by each sculpture. I love how this monument is erected in the midst of the city centre serving a continuous reminder of Cebu's significant timeline for locals and visitors.

It was a huge monument but I'm wondering why some of the local do not even know the name of the place,(we just ask the local for direction) I think maybe its already normal for them (just side of the road) I hope they will maintain this historical landmark.
