Lapu-Lapu Shrine at Mactan Shrine Park Cebu City

The Lapu-Lapu Shrine is also a tourist attraction in Cebu City. It is indeed a historic place just like Magellan Cross. The Lapu-Lapu Shrine is a 20 meter bronze statue and can be found at Punta EngaƱo, Lapu-Lapu City.



The statue was built to honor the native leader Lapu-Lapu who defeated the Spanish soldiers and killed the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. The first Philippine battle was happened last April 27, 1521 on the very exact location where Lapu-Lapu monument was built. That is why the place is being preserved for historical conservation.

The place is famous specially when conducting educational tours, as students from all over the region visit the place for historical purposes. It is a great honor too to visit this historic place and was proud to have our native hero named Lapu-Lapu.



Inside the park there are stores that sell different souvenirs. If you do feel hungry, there are lots of restaurants. There's also a seafood restaurant that is suitable for your stomach and pocket.
