You will be amazed when you see the monument that has a lot of story to tell you. It was erected to remember what our great ancestors have done to defend our nation from spaniard colonization.

The artist puts a lot of history of Cebu into this depiction. It is meant for those who have a general idea of Cebu's history, focusing a lot around Magellan. It is worth a browse if you are in the area. It takes about 15-30...More

It's my first time to visit here. It's need to have a tour to visit there. By the way, you have better carry the water because it's very hot outside.

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
